Re: Nextion 3.2" LCD Display + Teensy 3.2 + Megasquirt CAN D

Does anyone have an update or pictures of the displays?

I have been looking into this more as I wanted to replace my current instrument cluster with something. The older mustangs have terrible and inaccurate gauges pushing toward aftermarket gauges, but I want to just use the MS and CAN.

The previous plan was to get the racepac, but have delayed due to it being so expensive. I would like to run 2 - 5" displays and then just wire the turn signals and high beams to leds. I believe this should give enough display room to accommodate all the current gauges and more....

This was my first project and I learned it all from scratch you can see my progress through the threads. It's pretty straightforward, but does take a while to learn.

I made some changes to my friends Screen he uses with Microsquirt:
https://youtu.be/fyfo0VdvHaw
I would like to find some ways to make better gtransitions between pages, but it is not really easy. this transitions are just dimming the screen to 0, changing the page and progressively dimming up to 100% again.
I can share the files if needed: from Nextion and Arduino(Teensy)

I will have a new project in the comming weeks for a 7" Nextion screen to be used with a MS3...

Could you post the final code for this project? I looked on the first page but did not see anything attached in the message you were referring to.

Thanks!
