Thanks for showing me that alternative. That might fit in a case better with what I want to make. Though shield will probably be good during prototyping of it. What I want to make will be carried in a person in pocket.
Nope not for gps. Just a device to help remind me of when to take medicine and to track when I took it. I have some confusing perscriptions and thought this would be a fun project. I'll look at those displays but they don't seem to be in stock. I was thinking of just using 7 segment displays though.
