I need a white backlit LCD that has 1 character (numerical is my focus) - aprox. 1" tall by .3" wide
I completed my project using a LED 7-segment display : http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=163197.msg1227681#msg1227681
However I am finding it is FAR to bright at night time- and barely visible during the day time...
The Trailtech vapor gauge i have is perfect- in the day time the black text appears fully readable, and at night time it has a nice dim white glowy backlight.
Any other suggestions welcome too... I know I could put a dimmer on the LED-7 seg. but I figure it'd also be nice to have this display match more closely the Vapor gauges.
edit- something like this but backlit: http://www.alliedelec.com/search/productdetail.aspx?sku=70127425#tab=overview
And can i run that via the Arudino?
