1.8" Color TFT Shield w/micro SD and Joystick

by rrvogel4 on Tue Sep 01, 2020 3:09 pm

I would like to buy this but have a few questions about it. Can I use the micro SD for logging data instead of holding bitmaps and could I use software SPI to operate a NRF24L01 at the same time as the display?

I still haven't received a response, but mostly I would like to know if I can use the SD for storing and retrieving data.

Yes, you can use the SD for any type of file storage. And you should be able to communicate with other SPI devices too.

Well I got the shield and am confused now. The demo for this showed the text in landscape mode, but I now know that that was for the V1 .0 version. I received the V2 version, and the demo I was directed to has the text in portrait mode. How do I get the TFT to display text in landscape mode?

There is a function for that in the GFX library: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-gfx ... he-display
