    I'm using GY-80(ADXL345, L3G4200D, HMC5883L) module in my project. I have some queries for setting offsets.

    As the case in accelerometer when the device is kept stand still on a flat surface ,ideally it should read X : 0, Y : 0, Z : 980.
    Similarly what are the values I should get for Gyroscope and Magnetometer.
    Are X : 0, Y : 0, Z : 0 for Gyroscope and Magnetometer. ??

    Please help me out.

    Don't the datasheets for the modules give the necessary info?

    I think you will find that it is X=0, Y=0, Z=0

    that is the acceleration due to 1g is taken into account

    The HMC5883L data sheet says ..
    during self test if the configuration register B is set to 0xA0 (Gain=5), values around +452 LSb (1.16 Ga * 390 LSb/Ga) will be placed in the X and Y data output registers and around +421 (1.08 Ga * 390 LSb/Ga) will be placed in Z data output register.

    Is this means If I'm not getting these mentioned values then I should set bias/offset to get these values ?
