Hi, At the bottom of page 172, the line states: "If I2C is available, you will see some output like that shown in Figure 8-3. This shows that two I2C addresses are in use—0x40 and 0x70" On the following page, the picture does not support this. The two address in use are not 0x40 and 0x70, they are actually 0x68 and 0x70. The quick solution is to change the text to reflect this or the more complicated is to replace figure 8.3. Thank you
