And they are much more expensive what we have now.

BTW: some of the EA boards have both, the LIS302 and the BMA180.
Because they have different I2C addresses.

For the compass, we had to choose between the LSM303 and the HMC5883.

I will capture all these corrections for the next release of
the document.

Thanks for all hints and suggestions!
