I tried to use IMU 3dm Gx4 25 in Hector SLAM. The package of IMU 3dm Gx4 comes from the website:

However, I got a problem when I used Hector SLAM. After using roswtf, it showed that there was no tf message. Furthermore, the problem might be come from hector_imu_attitude_to_tf.

As long as your sensor publishes sensor_msgs/Imu you can use it. Your Problem looks like you do not have transformation between robot-base and IMU sensor. Did you add it into urdf file (or urdf.xacro)? If not you should do it.
