Re: Enclosure Kit - Arduino compatible R3 Mega, 1602 Serial

I went to our local craft shop, bought a "Really Useful Box" for £1 and after a bit of hacking with a Stanley knife and a Dremel, I have a really useful box capable of holding the Arduino Uno, a 1602 serial LCD and my own interface board.

Mind you, it doesn't look all that pretty! :D

Re: YwRobot Serial I2C LCD 1602 Module (HCARDU0023)

I just got this display and it's excellent - does "almost" everything I wanted, however there is one thing I can't quite figure out - what's the character set?

I'm trying to access the copyright symbol, "©" and trying to use char(169) but I get garbage. Bear in mind I'm very new to all this!
