AirCasting: Gadgeteer External Device
Happy to hear you we're able to get everything working. Also note that while actively recording a session you can toggle between sensor streams by a) pressing the "eye" icon on the "Sensors Dashboard" screen; or b) pressing the "Avg", "Now", or "Peak" circles and selecting a sensor from the list.
