Some doubt about pigeon

Our team decide to use pigeon on our robot , it seems that l am not so familiar with pigeon. It seems that it can wire on a TalonSRX . So, is it an encoder, or juts a gyro like navX. If it is a gyro, can l use it just like the navX?

Any answer will be appreciated.

Have you tried checking the phoenix documentation and code examples? It just sits on the CAN bus and reports angle out of the box.

It has the user guide for Pigeon which yes is similar to a NavX in that both are IMUs but you will not be able to access the values in the same way, have to use the Phoenix library instead of NavX library I think.
