Nice work alien_sailor!

A sailing compass for dinghies. This is based on an Adafruit LCD display, Arduino Pro Mini and a Devantech CMPS10 compass module

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  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.
