Hey... I think I have suggested that before,any chance to make Mobiflight compatible with HD44780 lcd display? It is very popular in the arduino community and may be add a support for Nokia 5110 lcd display too... Those will be great for display info.

Thanks!

I am also thinking about having a LCD support. It should be possible to get something general into MobiFlight.
First I need to buy a LCD though :-) and in terms of priority it would be after stepper support.

I hope that you still can use already MobiFlight somehow and that you are patient enough until then.
Have a great day!

There is an alternative if you are inpatient.

If you have another Arduino card, you can program it with Lin2FS and connect it to LCDs. I connected two LCDs and used it for autopilot display just for fun. I can pass you the code/program if you decided to pursue.
