Arduino BT board and secondary display

Hi fellow Arduino'ers! :smiley:

I've got a couple of quick questions, I hope you can help me out here..

  • How do you send code/program the Arduino Bluetooth board? Via Bluetooth?

  • What type of display would you recommend me to go for?
    I'd like to be able to use the screen as a sort of secondary display - ideally like a widgets-display.
    If that's not an option, what's the best candidate out there in regards of a basic LCD-screen that's easy to connect to the board?

Not 100% sure, but I’m pretty sure you program the BT over bluetooth.

And as far as a widgets display, I think it’s be a better idea to get a 4x20 LCD Character display($25 on Sparkfun) and wire it up to your paralell port, then run a program called LCD Smartie.

Unless you;re talking about a wireless widgets display, then I’m not sure, but apparently someone managed to control an Arduino’d display with smartie.

You won't get any screen like graphics on the LCD displays you can attach to the Arduino, even for low resolution there is too much data involved. Do some sums and work it out.
