I've never use a TFT display with arduino before and have not got a clue where to start. I've used a alphanumeric display for a few projects I've done.
I've had a project i mind for a couple of years to replace the old LCD in my car with a TFT as found in modern vehicles.
I've attached a picture of the original display which looks black but when it was working the centre part lite up for different warning lights. You can see in the picture the outline of the different warning symbols.
My first question is.
Is this something that could be replicated with a TFT?
How would each part of the display be replicated ie:-
Would it require lots of bmp files for the different symbols or could the arduino code draw them on the display.
