This is a very basic question.
How do I connect an LCD display to my arduino, to display my Serial Monitor data? I am seeing videos of how to connect the display, however what do I do if the pins they recommend are already in use?
I have connected an encoder buffer shield to digital pins 13,12,11,8,7 and ground and power (all of this without a breadboard). Is this what a bread board is for, to have multiple devices go to the same pins? Or can I connect the LCD to the pins that aren't in use. This is my first project with arduino.
Any help would be appreciated.
This is the LCD display I will be using by sparkfun.
