Nokia LCD Display

I picked up a Nokia 3310 LCD Display from SparkFun a while ago and just got around to trying it out.  It seems like a great and inexpensive way to provide feedback
from projects without breaking the bank.

The display requires 5 Pins from your micro controller (I'm told you can get by with 4 if it's the only thing on the SPI bus, but I haven't tested this)

 Here is a sample of using the display with some sample code available on the SparkFun website. I will warn you, there is a problem with their code.  The Character map has a problem.  Modify the code in the Character definition section to look like this:  Or just download the sketch for your arduino below.

Sample Code

 ,{0x02, 0x04, 0x08, 0x10, 0x20} // 5c \
  ,{0x00, 0x41, 0x41, 0x7f, 0x00} // 5d ]
