Is there a way for me to display a variable on the controller during auton for testing purposes

We are testing our gps sensor and we are trying to see what the heading of the sensor is during auton so we can see where it is looking.

Obviously certain functionality is blocked during the autonomous in competition.

With that said, there is a workaround. The autonomous instructions are just a function within the code. You can add controller display programming inside the auton function. Then inside of the driver control code, add a button that calls the auton function. Run driver control and press the button to start the autonomous function.
