I'm trying to get a RF24 Sensor Network up, and think it would probably be pretty helpful if I could have multiple serial monitors printing what arduino 1 is saying to arduino 2. Is that possible? In the Arduino IDE, it seems like you can only select one com at a time? tia :)
If you open another [u]instance[/u] of the IDE you can choose and monitor different serial port thru Tools I mean don't use File. New but run a new IDE from the Icon (the best I can describe).
multiple serial monitors
I use the free TeraTerm Windows program. Very light weight code with good features. Just Google for it.
This is what those little LCD screens are for...

Agreed! And they are (currently) cheap. Just posted about this 1.44" 128x128 under $4 U.S. http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=260605.msg1840012#msg1840012
