Hey everyone, I'd like to share my latest project using and Arduino Duemilanove and the ever nifty uLCD43 (GFX) from 4D Systems. It's a handheld GPS that also incorporates an RFID sensor. An Arduino parses the NMEA data and sends a fixed packet over serial to the uLCD, but most of the work is done on the Picaso processor itself. The Arduino program is relatively short, and 90% of that code belongs to Adafruit and their example "parse" sketch. The 4DGL program however, is over 1000 lines of code and heavily commented, so I wanted to share it with anyone looking for plenty of examples of using the many built in functions. I've included the link to the full build details. Here's the link to the write-up : http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-PIP-Boy

Cool project. One of my favorites posted to Instructables in recent memory :-)
