dCompass Drivers and examples


Can’t download the second example of dCompass for Java on the following Dexter Industries page: www.dexterindustries.com/manual/lego-mindstorms-sensors/dcompass/, the link redirects to leJOS tree folder.

In addition I couldn’t calibrate the sensor using the drivers provided in Example 1, so I also request an example using the sensor.


A few things were moved around in our new website. The drivers and links can be found on the product page here: http://www.dexterindustries.com/site/?product=dcompass-digital-compass-lego-mindstorms-nxt-ev3

We don’t directly support the Lejos software for this product; that link though should take you to the Lejos page; they’re great guys and should be able to help you get going with the dCompass and Java.

If that doesn’t work, there are a lot of examples in C, both for RobotC and for Bricxx we can try to help with.


Also, there are these examples provided by Aswin a while ago: http://www.dexterindustries.com/files/dCompass_Java.zip


In the first link there’s this example: Lejos Example (web) leJOS with the dCompass. Thank you kirkpthompson!. But as I’ve said, the link is broken.

The second link, actually it’s not an example, it is the driver, which I’m not getting correct values. By the way, I’m using NXT and lejos 0.9.1. Also, i’m trying to contact Aswin, maybe he could give us a hand here.


the second link doesn’t work anymore.
can you tell me where i can find the NXT-G Block for the dCompass?
