  • Loading code to the chip is not a problem here but Im not able to load a code AND make the LCD work with it! Has anyone worked that out?

  • Does this one need to have the lines (tx and rx) reduced to 3.3V like the older one? (Or is it just rx?) Are the back pads the same configuration? What I got for the old one is from left to right- shield (optional) , GND (black) , rx (green), tx (white) and 5V square (red) next to the J1 sign...

    I still can't get my (GT-511C1) to work, do I have the wires right? Thanks!

  • I have the previous model (GT-511C1), what is the difference to this update?

  • Hey Thanks for all the info and resources, I was able to build this thing without any trouble, the one hang up I'm still trying to figure out is when I upload a code using the unit as an Arduino what is the change on the code I need make to enable the screen? I imagine all the pins that are not available have to be addressed to make the display work, correct? Thanks in advance!

  • Hello I've been trying different things here but I can't figure out how to make it play song after song continuously without having to press next, also is there a way to make it stream all the files continuously in random order? Thanks!

No public wish lists :(
