Hi, I am trying to configure a dual EKF plus navsat_transform setup for robot_localization and I am not sure of how to input the value of magnetic_declination_radians.

Magnetic declination for the place I live is -9° 16' (W) and the webpage I am using says: "Declination is NEGATIVE (WEST)". So, the value of the magnetic_declination_radians parameter should be -0.152425 or should I use the negative value of 0.152425?

Thanks in advance!
