Arduino and SerLCD 2.5
Hooking up the Sparkfun SerLCD was a breeze, transmission over the Arduino's RX pin resulted in text printing to the serial module. I am using the SerLCD module connected to a GDM1602K Basic 16x2 Character LCD - White on Black 5V.
Using the SparkFunSerLcd Arduino library also made things easier-- this library allows use of Software Serial, allowing serial tranmission over any of the digital i/o pins. Apparently uploading to the Arduino whilst pluggin in to the SerLCD on the RX pin can cause corruption of the SerLCD module memories.
