bluetooth LCD with Axon
« on: July 07, 2009, 12:18:13 PM »
So I got my Bluetooth/Axon/LCD working properly... I made a video for you guys to see, hope you like... ask if you want the code, it is really simple so nothing special.

Axon
Bluetooth-Uart0
LCD-Uart2

Nice, I could use some help with using that LCD screen begin that I have that exact same one from spark fun.  I can't seem to post text on the last two lines.  Probably because I've tried to modified code for my recent 2x16 lcd and failed.

are you using the same SerLCD with a different LCD screen? if so you will need to reprogram it for a 4X20 LCD screen

The 20x4 has its own ser for it and it came factory programmed.  Here it is http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=462
The program code issue is from my microcontroller.   I attempted to try and modify the code for 20x4.  But all that code is in Basic language and I need to start being a man and use C  :D :D

I would switch to C right away... there are many free manuals online that I have found really useful! well anyway, That is the exact LCD w/ SerLCD that I have. If you are using C all you need to do is initalize that uart and then use the printf() function... It is really that easy.

This is a really intuitive C tutorial...
