made it a little further...

Programmed a new mailbox mission while the rover was powered up and connected to the ground station. Mission was going so well until about the 2800-meter mark. From then on, the rover started tracking right of the waypoint path along with the indicated heading position of the vehicle. I think the compass variance was caused by excessive vibration. It's a pretty bumpy ride and even with shocks on the rover and vibration dampening on the microcontroller there is not much I can do about that (due to the small scale) other than try again another day and see if the variance happens at roughly the same distance. 85,91,70,0,B
