Electronic Compass

I have a small remotely controlled vehicle and I want it to be able to determine its orientation. Can someone recommend some sort of electronic compass that fits easily into a breadboard and provides an analog voltage output to interface with a microcontroller. Thanks for any help.

    What is your budget? You can try Sparkfun's one:

    It wont exactly fit on the breadboard, but you can run some jumper wires from it. Also, it uses an I2C interface. Not the analog you want, but it can still interface with the microcontroller.
