  1. I have been considering a digital compass using Arduino and an LCD display ever since I got my new truck (my old one had a compass built into the mirror). More info, please.

  2. Bravo! Very nice execution of your project.

    I seem to remember that this was the subject of a forum post asking how to maintain waterproof integrity when using otter-boxes and the like.

    How did you finally wind up licking that challenge?

  3. I see you are using a proportional-width font for the digits.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
