New to electronics, and new to auduino been a rather steep learning curve but I've gotten a good handle on things.... I hope... :p
My first project is reasonably simple. Have an LCD show readings from various sensors. It will be mounted in a car. The sensors will be various temp and pressure.
Few stumbling blocks on the way to the final product. But mostly sorted out..
The thing I'm stuck on is the display I want.
I would like a reasonably large screen. Around the size of an iPhone screen. Which brings me to my next question.
Am I able to use an iPhone screen, or something simalar, htc, samsung etc? Not the touch panel. Just the LCD screen? If so, how complex is it to use?
Or is there something simalar in size that would be easier to use? I'm only looking at the phone screens because they are a great size for what I want.
I don't need the sharpness/resolution that the iPhone, htc etc etc has, but it's the right sorta size. And I haven't found anything that is around the same size.
I can even go to a character LCD. But It needs to be about the same size still.
So any suggestions on using a phone screen like that. Or suggestions as to another screen that's more suitable?
I'm currently using an arduino UNO. But I MAY be updating to a custom built board for the final product. So if the UNO doesn't have the grunt to run such a big screen, what would I need?
Thanks for any help
