Just a clarification about Lidar Lite V3:
Back to rel. 3.4, Ardupilot was using these registers 041 HW_VERSION 0x4f SW_VERSION for validation for the V1 -vs- V2 validation.
Since Garmin acquired Lidar Lite, these registers no longer exist, this is why the newest Rel. 3.5 ''bypass'' the register check when setting TYPE 15.
You can probe these registers with I2C tools, but I dont recommend this because it might cause damage if not used correctly. The best is to select either TYPE 3 or 15 on a rel.3.5 and the V3 should start as a type 15 and not start as a type 3.
