Yep... free stuff is always good! I just used one of the REALLY long HiTechnic cables and it made all the difference in how the bot worked.

Jim,... Compass Sensor-wise?

Yes, I mounted the compass far away from the main body of Sneeker... ran some tests on it just to make certain it wasn't getting any weird results from the motor and camera. Then I moved it closer to the body and compared... no major changes as long as I keep the Compass about 7 inches or so away from any motor.

Jim - did you try to calibrate the compass sensor? I think the calibration ability is accessible now...
1) signal compass sensor to enter calibration mode
2) turn robot completely around 1 or more times
3) do a regular reading from the sensor (to trip it out of calibration mode)
