There are also a number of other questions the discuss alternate gyros for the turtlebot: ( ) (discusses adjusting the gyro sensitivity)

Hi ahendrix, You told me that I may have to make some adjustments to work correctly with my this sensor. I'm confused, what kind of adjustments I shoud do. This gyro doesn't work for me. Using it, my maps was really a mess ! :( I need your help. Kind regard.
