FXOS8700CQ low pass filter for tilt sensor?

I am using the FXOS8700CQ strictly for tilt detection. I find that I am getting some high acceleration readings though.


I see that I can set the CTRL_REG1 LNOISE bit.

Does the HP_FILTER_CUTOFF setting LPF=1 and HPF=1 work as a low pass filter for regular sampling or only for pulse detection?


What is the best way to configure this device for reading just the acceleration due to the earth's gravity?
