From what I've read so far, am I right in saying they work as angular accelerometers? Do they output a given number of volts per degree per second? If I integrated the output over a given period of time, would that voltage tell me the angle through which the gyroscope has rotated?
Well, compasses do work on the basis of 360 degrees in a cicle

in english its grade, grad is the abriviation on calculators. geeky side coming out.

anyways... it's about understanding what you mean... anything else is symbols...
What I meant was the compass modules I've looked at so far give out a PWM signal based on their rotation away from N (for example, a mark:space ratio that alters by 16uS per degree of rotation past North plus a 1mS offset) - so I'd have to calculate the difference between the start position and the end position of the rotation, which would be complicated by going through North, as the PWM signal would effectively reset.
Surely somebody must have done this before - do I really have to invent it myself?

Comprehension goes through symbols in one way or another, whether related to "a priori" or "a posteriori" knowledge.If the symbols goes wrong, there's a good chance the comprehension follows.
