Suggestion to Sparkfun… you should add a note to your shields about compatibility with Leonardo. I burned a fair bit of time trying to figure this out. While there is some info on the forums, you actually have to do a bit of digging since the Leonardo is new.
I got some help from the Arduino forum. This shield will not work with a Leonardo unless you get the Sparkfun TransmogriShield or make a modification yourself.
I chose to make the modification myself. I cut the legs off D11, D12, D13 on the header to the USB Host Shield and jumpered in from the ISP header on the Leonardo SCK (ISP pin 3 to D13), MOSI (ISP pin 4 to D11), MISO (ISP pin 5 to D12).
I have spent an afternoon trying to get this board to work with a Leonardo. I just discovered that Leonardo will not work with it it doesn’t have the SPI lines on pin 10, 11, 12 and 13 but only on the ICSP header.
Is there any way I can get around this without buying a different Arduino?
No public wish lists :(
