The minimum distance is 2 feet or 0.60 meters.  The LCD display will
display an error message for any distance below 2 feet.  This is most
probably due to a time delay required after pulsing the ultrasonic element
to allow it to settle before looking for the reflected wave.  The
repeatability is very stable at distances above 2 feet however.
