    Matrix Orbital GLK-12232 Display Software

    Not having much luck Googling....

    I have a Matrix Orbital GLK-12232-25-SM display for the Carputer and am finding useful software for this thing to be non-existent....

    I used the software that comes with it to load up files to it... I can change them using this software (manually)... but what I need is a "batch file" type deal that will just run through these uploaded graphics files as needed....

    The display is not intended to display any actual information, but a clock display would be cool, but really just run through some graphics files....

    Has anybody had any luck with something along this line? Or any ideas on controlling the display of image files on an LCD display?

    Thanks in advance.

    Already tried the forum on the Matrix Orbital site?
    I don't have any experience with graphical LCDs. I have a MX2.
    Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?

    Currently : Audi A6 - no install

    Second install : VW Passat '97 CarPC
    First install : '87 Audi 80 CarPC

    Yeah, I found that Matrix Orbital forum to be pretty useless... it has a lot of good info on the character LCD's, but nothing good for the graphic ones.... It did lead me to some software that was useless and flakey....

    I am starting to think this graphics LCD was a mistake...

    When you install the display is there a virtual COM port assigned for the display? If so, you might be able to program it all yourself with VB, C or Java...

    hey dug1967!

    Have you tried using any of the following LCD Software:

    LCDC - www.lcdc.cc
    LCD Studio - www.lcdstudio.com

    These should do the trick for you. Let me know if you need any more help!
