 /*You can only receive acurate barrometric readings or acurate altitiude
 readings at a given time, not both at the same time. The following two lines
 tell the sensor what mode to use. You could easily write a function that
 takes a reading in one made and then switches to the other mode to grab that
 reading, resulting in data that contains both acurate altitude and barrometric
 readings. For this example, we will only be using the barometer mode. Be sure
 to only uncomment one line at a time. */
