OK in a nutshell, here's what I learnt the hard way.

1 Most importantly, the sensor board MUST be located component side up and not as in the magnetometer cal screen.

2 On the GIU screen click on "show" menu and select advanced settings. in the top right hand corner some adjustment of the "gyro weight on pan %" may be necessary, 99% seems best.

3 In the accelerometer cal screen click on "help" menu and select help/how to, to see exactly how to position the sensor for calibration.

4 Regular resetting of the Arduino by pressing the on-board reset button seems to help

5 Select disconnect when exiting a calibration screen to release the serial link so it can be used by another cal screen.

Andy.
