I would totally order that, but I cannot read Chinese at all. And is that right converting to about 2.50 per unit?! If that's the case, I should buy twelve or something.

The reason why I'm leaning towards the Seeduino is because it has 70 pins, not 54, and when it's on sale, costs about 15 bucks less than the Arduino Mega.

And I think doing a RPM/Tach sensor would be awesome, but my car has a cable driven tach. Kind of lame for this purpose, but whatever. It works.

And on the screen, I don't mind it being monotone. I'm putting it directly where my current defunct speedometer is, so I need it a little bigger actually. I just can't afford the big-big one.
I suck at coding! Woo!
