robot_localization and IMU selection

Dear all, I am thinking to buy IMU to be used with robot_localization package. I understand that IMU must be in ENU mode. May I know which IMU support ENU mode and output reliable orientation information? Is microstrain 3DM-GX5-25 a good choice? But it is in NED. Can we use it as ENU via some kind of static transform?

Best Regards Min Latt

Are you working from source? Even if you get an NED IMU, it's easy enough to modify drivers to convert to ENU. I typically just invert the values for the Y and Z axes.
