Low-cost graphic Nokia 3310 LCD shield & Joystick

I was just introduced to the Arduino by this thread:

http://www.nano-reef.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=206246

My electronics skill is nil, but my father-in-law is an electronics guru (30+ years in AT&T's hardware R&D department) and has agreed to help out, I'm just trying to locate parts at the moment. :)

And, obviously I'm in this to learn and to pick his brain while I can...

Thanks for the help!

Oh, and not to sound like a complete leech, if we're able to get this project going I'll be developing the software - that's my contribution to the project. :)

Hi nuelectronics,

nice product, and very reasonable pricing.

I got this from the UK to Texas in just a few days so no worries about overseas shipping for those of you weary about it.

I am having a problem getting it to work with the arduino mega board though. Does anyone have know what mods need to be made to get it working on the mega?

I ordered one too and it was shipped and arrived in Colorado in good order in a reasonable time (roughly a week). Was very pleased with the service from Nuelectronics, thank you.

KRavEN,

Shield uses the SPI, Duemilanove SPI pins are 10,11,12,13 but Mega SPI pins are 50,51,52,53. You may solve with this solution. http://mcukits.com/2009/04/06/arduino-ethernet-shield-mega-hack/

I was hoping I could do it all in software like this: http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1253831901 but I'm not seeing how to directly translate the mods in that thread to the n3310_lcd.h and n3310_lcd.c files.

Hello,
