Mini lcd's Answered

I'm trying to find a mini lcd to use to display information. Sorta like the G15 has but in color. I was looking for lcds on ebay but could only find mini tv's that were expensive or computer monitors that go down to 13 inch. Does anybody know were I can pickup a small lcd around 4-5 inches maybe.

If you wanted you could get the screen out of an i pod.

A (relatively powerful) microcontroller. Probably not the easiest thing in the workld but there is example code out there, try the sparkfun forums.

I also just thought about using lcds from phones or ipods. I see they are cheap. I wonder if there is a way to convert them

You may need to find a wiring diagram (schematic).
