Venus GPS updated firmware asof 07 OCT 2011 (attached)

The firmware update on the Venus GPS page (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9133) is out of date compared to what shipped on the board I received this week (asof 07 OCT 2011) So I sent a request to SkyTraq for updated firmware for the Venus634FLPx and they sent me two files (attached) within hours. ...

Re: Serial Graphic LCD 128x64 Arduino Code

I briefly looked at Sabesto's work. Looks pretty good. I would definitely try that approach when you get back.

Re: Serial Graphic LCD 128x64 Arduino Code

Awesome. Now we just need more libraries for components like these. I can't help but think that Sparkfun would give you free components in exchange for well written, tested libs like yours. Can't hurt to ask them... especially if you're looking for a specific component. Worst case, you might get a d...

You should add your library to the playground page:

Re: Serial Graphic LCD 128x64 Arduino Code

Back home. Forgot about the wierd x y coordinate system in this LCD. 0,0 starts at the lower left (vice upper left). Here's an example program that is closer to your requirements. Replace my variable "x" with your pot reading code. You should see a number about mid-screen incrementing and resetting ...

Re: Serial Graphic LCD 128x64 Arduino Code

You're doing awesome, Lam. I'm at dinner so can't test but suspect you could do a gotoXY and print each time without clearing.

Re: Serial Graphic LCD 128x64 Arduino Code

Is there a reason that the clearScreen() in my code doesn't work? Are you seeing any output? I just now took my original code from this thread, hooked up the LCD as described in the comments of that code, and it worked first try. You should see a big X, circle, box and hello world on the display. I...

Re: Serial Graphic LCD 128x64 Arduino Code

Ports 0 and 1 are the ports that Arduino's built-in Serial library uses. Your code that calls Serial.print(val) works only because you are connected to pins 0 and 1. The problem with that, is that everytime you want to update your code, you have to disconnect the LCD from 0 and 1 or it interferes wi...

It works! I used this article to figure out how to make the LED work. I can successfully light up the LED now. Here's the modified sparkfun code. Note that I still don't have any neon wire or inverter, so have not tested that part yet. And my ledOn() and ledOff() functions aren't friendly to the cur...

I have the EL Sequencer and a 3.3v FTDI breakout. I could successfully push down arduino sketches but couldn't seem to figure out how to control the A-H channels. So I decided to switch over to a pure C and winAVR approach. I updated my eclipse environment with the AVR plugin, which uses winAVR tool...
