    over at the [h] forums, there are a number of pieces of software designed to work with the display in serial mode, and anything that can use a parralell lcd should be able to work with the vfd. In my car it was nearly completely washed out in dirrect sunlight, even at full brightness, and extremely bright at night.

    I looked the other day and the GPS was the first thing on that page. Now it is not there any more. I looked on the rest of their site and could not find it anywhere.
