Well so far so good. Ratshack got my parts in yesterday so last night after cutting wood I got the guino all wired up. Today at lunchtime I got past the administrator stuff and was able to install the USB drivers. I flipped through all the screens and it works perfectly at least on the bench.

I left it running for a couple hours to see if the display would garble (I used my green one) and it stayed fine. But I did notice that some contrast and brightness settings make the display act funny, so I just avoid those settings. There are plenty of good settings to choose from.

Hopefully tonight I can try it in the car. Ill take a pic of what I got so far too. Ive got an idea for a case too.

I do have one question. I notice the protoshield relocates the reset button. Does anyone know which pins to tap into on the board to do that? Id like to put my 4th tact switch off to the side as a reset button, so once it is in the case, if I need to reset it, I wont have to take it apart.
