DecaMove Magnetometer calibration procedure

A good magnetometer calibration is important to ensure an accurate heading for long sessions.

The purpose of the magnetometer calibration is to calibrate for the unique magnetic field affecting the environment in which the calibration process takes place – your playing area. Rotating the three-axis magnetometers allows the DecaMove to separate the surrounding magnetic field from the magnetic field of the device itself.

  1. Open the DecaHub app, click on Devices and click on the DecaMove tab
  2. In the DecaMove device options, click on “Calibrate Magnetometer”
  3. Rotate the DecaMove ~180° and back to the beginning position in each axis (roll, pitch, yaw) as shown in the video below.
    1. The whole calibration time should be between 6 to 10 seconds and once finish, click on “Stop calibration”

    That’s it, your DecaMove’s magnetometer is now calibrated to your play area.
