OK thanks for such a quick reply!

I got this from an old kit I had so no real loss, I wanted a 2 line eventually anyhow.  So ill make sure I read the datasheet before I buy.

Cheers

Hey guys,

I know this is an old thread but I'm having exactly the same issue, 1 line display that shows first 8 chars on line 1 and then next 8 at postion 40... not much fun!

Did anyone ever work this out it must be an init setting, my LCD is part of a kit from maplin and did work as a 16 char display in that project (do not have the code for this smiley-sad )  Model is GDM1601C

Thanks for any heko you can give,

G

Hey,

Saw this and thought it was worth my first post!  Really great idea I wish my motor was quick enough for me to be interested in how much G I was pulling  smiley

I was just thinking, could you pull some of the data directly from the car itself (i.e. from the ECU) via the OBD port which a Subaru must have, then you could measure air temp, fuel mix, knock, loads of things without any external sensors?

Just a thought love the project though.

Thanks

G
