Arduino Compatibility Question

Post by async »

I'm looking to buy my first Arduino for a CAN and GPS project.

I have a few questions...

1) The Arduino boards that interested me are the Arduino Uno and the Arduino Mega 2560. Which one is compatible with these shields?
CAN-BUS Shield: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10039
Color LCD Shield: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9363

2) Can I use the two shield boards mentioned above a the same time connected to the same Arduino?

Thanks.

As a start you might want to look at the pins being used to see any overlaps. You can look at the pins being used by both shields here:

Color LCD Shield
CAN Bus Shield
