    Phidget Temperature sensor calibration

    Hi guys,

    So I'm currently using two Phidget temperature sensors with Road Runner, 1 inside the car and 1 outside the car. It appears that the temperatures given are slightly out by 10 degrees (both internal and external). The sensors are not in places that are higher in temperature.

    So far I see no way to calibrate the temperature sensors, so was wonderring if there is any way I can provide an adjustment value (e.g. in the INI file). For example: PHID01=-10, PHID02=-12

    This would be great as it would make the temperature readings slightly mroe realistic and also would provide a certain amount of calibration. Obviously the key would be that the value would be added or subtracted from the original value prior to calculation.

    Thanks!
