Picked up my first display for my Arduino Duemilanove.
Owning a VW TDI, and wanting to monitor EGT, boost, temps, etc motivated me to at least investigate how difficult it is to interface the Arduino with a full color RGB LCD.
After a quick Google search for “RGB LCD Shield for Arduino”, I ran across the following product from NKC Electronics.
After a little playing I got the board soldered up and displaying the demo images and some custom text. The arduino demo code library was written by Henning Karlsen for NKC, and is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License. Really easy to assemble, and well documented code.
I did have a little bit of difficulty getting the full Demo code to run, but the bitmap code worked great with a simple upload.
