I am getting data from a FXOS8700CQ and the ranges are:
X: -160 to +200 uT
Y: -160 to +190 uT
Z: +35 to +350 uT
Are these accurate values? (I am in Santa Ana, CA if that makes any difference). Since the magnetometer only measures the magnetic field of the Earth, shouldn't the Z range also be -160 to +200 uT? Is there something wrong with the Z range?
