#include <Wire.h> 

int compassAddress = 0x42 >> 1;  // From datasheet compass address is 0x42
                                 // shift the address 1 bit right, the Wire library only needs the 7
                                 // most significant bits for the address
int reading = 0; 

void setup() 
{ 
  Wire.begin();                // join i2c bus (address optional for master) 
  Serial.begin(9600);          // start serial communication at 9600bps 
  pinMode(48, OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(48, HIGH);
} 
  
void loop() 
{ 
  // step 1: instruct sensor to read echoes 
  Wire.beginTransmission(compassAddress);  // transmit to device
                           // the address specified in the datasheet is 66 (0x42) 
                           // but i2c adressing uses the high 7 bits so it's 33 
  Wire.send('A');          // command sensor to measure angle  
  Wire.endTransmission();  // stop transmitting 
 
  // step 2: wait for readings to happen 
  delay(10);               // datasheet suggests at least 6000 microseconds 
  
  // step 3: request reading from sensor 
  Wire.requestFrom(compassAddress, 2);  // request 2 bytes from slave device #33 
 
  // step 4: receive reading from sensor 
  if(2 <= Wire.available())     // if two bytes were received 
  { 
    reading = Wire.receive();   // receive high byte (overwrites previous reading) 
    reading = reading << 8;     // shift high byte to be high 8 bits 
    reading += Wire.receive();  // receive low byte as lower 8 bits 
    reading /= 10;
    Serial.println(reading);    // print the reading 
  } 

  delay(500);                   // wait for half a second
