Thanks again for mentioning my shield!
Lcornelius, Thanks for ordering. I got your order packed. Will ship in a day or two. Yes, the shield works with both UNO and MEGA. For mega, the I2C bus is located at different pins (for on board RTC and optional EEPROM). You will need to jump to the correct mega pins, detailed in the documentation (I think mega pins 20 and 21). I've bought my mega 1280 clone a while back but didn't have time to play with it much. Some members on the forum have already used the shield with 16*2 display with mega. The 20x4 display version is specifically designed to NOT cover any of the pins on MEGA. See the notch on the right side of the shield board
My shield can be stacked above a Xbee shield and the shield kit has RTC chip with battery so you don't have to buy an RTC separately. Let me know what exactly you want to do and maybe I can help. Just keep us posted.
Thanks for the reply! I'm super excited to get my new toys!!!
Thanks for pointing out the RTC, luckily my order has not been shipped yet, so I will remove the RTC.
So if I understand you correctly your Display Shield will fit on top of the Wi-Fi shield?
Not that this is a issue, since I'm building a custom housing for my entire controller.
I will start a new thread on my build once I receive my toys.
In a nutshell, I'm going to program a marine aquarium controller.
The first stage will be to control my LED lights and simulate sunset/sunrise/lightning and clouds.
The second stage will be to measure my temp and various water parameters.
Have a great day!
