Gryo not working, Robot Spins around

Our teams robots have been one at a time, gyros are not working in autonomous. The robot gets to a turn function and continues to spin in a circle for the rest of the time.

We are coding with the vex iq blocks (middle School level)

The most common issue with a gyro and a robot endlessly spinning is usually not knowing exactly what value the gyro is sending you, and thus you might not have the math right. For example, “spin until the gyro >180°”, but the gyro is actually counting down instead of up, so it just spins forever. If you show the actual values of the gyro on the brain’s screen, you can see during the programming run what data you’re actually getting, and can adjust your math accordingly.
