Hey guys!
A semi-complete page is up, detailing the project. It's not yet complete, and will be updated again later today and probably after the weekend. Anyways, I'll start taking orders again within the next couple of weeks.

Cheers,
Me.

Woooo...
I need to take a good look at my dash and consider things...
With a vertically flipped display I suspect it could be nicely mounted in/on top of the roof of the instrument cluster and act as a headsup display... except naybe in full daylight, maybe even then considering what's beensaid about the brightness of the small displays... - but then I wouldn't really be dependent of it anyway, as the stock DIN opening in the 206 puts the empeg where it's readable just fine...

any developments on the software?

I recently thought about all this myself because i can't #$@#$%@#$ see the screen half the time cause its so DARK. And I've got a burn-in mark.. doh. So it was nice to find this thread but it seemed to have dead ended.

Anyways, the 3000s look really neat and I wonder what baud rate the serial port could push to it.

Using a smart algo for blits from the /proc display png (or was it a raw?) how fast could it update I wonder?

I want to get a board and test it, but they are expensive to just play with if it's not workable for the empeg.

So is anyone who was workin on this alive? if you aren't working on it any more let me know and give up the code if ya dont mind

All,
I am Mike's brother, he passed away from liver failure due to complications of his diabetes (Type 1). Recently, going through some stuff, I found some papers and notes and some odd looking screen things. The search for the part number brought me here (GW128x32C-K610A). I don't know where I put the papers at the moment, but I have the screens still and would like to get them to someone here. Otherwise I have no idea what to do with them.

Send me a message here or on my e-mail at foxmichaels@gmail.com if interested, or if you have anything you want done with them.

Thank you kindly,
Frank.

Oh, my. I am so sorry to hear that.

I'm probably not the right person to take that stuff, but if no one else steps up, let me know.
