While programming our Lego Boost set (using the Lego Boost App on iPad) I noticed that the distance sensor seemed to give inaccurate triggers. To try to confirm this, I connected the move hub to my computer and used node-poweredup to read out the sensor.

The results surprised me: the max reading I get (the furthest it registers an object) is 157mm. Also the steps are rather big, it always goes in steps of 25mm.

Is this normal range of the distance sensor? Or is it possible that ours has an issue (I wiped the sensor clean with a dry cotton cloth and reconnected it to the move up)?
