The IST8310 is temperature compensated. A micro USB port enables you to access all u-Blox features via u-Center and power the device. Please refer to this document if you have driver issues.
Extra Info: HMC5983 and the IST8310 are pin compatible (Either one is placed on the board but not both). There is a 3rd option, QMC5883L, that we might support later. If you need help identifying which version you have, please refer to this document.
