displaying pics from sd card on 2,8" tft slow??

by macnl on Sun Feb 03, 2013 6:10 pm

Hello,

I received the adafruit 2,8" tft breakout board.
And its working fine...
I wanted to store the pics on sd (to spare space on the arduino processor)
And this works fine too...

but its pretty slow to load.
I think its because of the sd card.
In the manual it says that you need to install a faster SD lib.
I did but it takes 3,8 second to display a full display picture.
Is this normal?? or are there posibility/s to load the display faster.

That is normal. These are not particularly fast displays, and the Arduino has very limited RAM for buffering.

I'm not great at this, but I had been experimenting with loading a bitmap array into flash with progmen, with mixed success. Do you read from the card every time or cache into a local buffer and reference that? Large / fullscreen images?
