Compatibility with LeafMaple Review by BennVenn

Great screen, easy to get working and with the backlight mod mentioned by Eugene offers great contrast and brightness. One issue i've found is the pin mapping compared to the itead Maple. The data bus does not align exactly requiring bit manipulation in the code which ultimately slows down the data rate quite significantly. Other than that, very happy with the LCD. (Posted on 1/8/14)
Working on Iteaduino Review by Tomi

Brightness could be better but its awesome to have such a display for that price! Got UTFT and UTOUCH working on Iteaduino. Otherwise they work with default Arduino Uno (pin) values except for touch switch the last 8 and 9! Thus, for initialization I used for UTFT myGLCD(ITDB28,19,18,17,16) and for UTOUCH myTouch(15,16,14,8,9). Value 16 doesn't matter since touch CS is tied to ground but 16 is not connected to the shield so it feels better than default 10. (Posted on 12/2/13)
Sorted dim back light issue Review by Eugene

The back light leds are wired to the 3v3 line through a 100 ohm resistor. When i read the display data sheet, it states that the forward voltage of the leds are 3.2v. I bypassed the 100ohm resistor with a 4.7 ohm 1/8th watt one and the display is nice and bright now. I will wire a small 100 ohm pot in series with the 4.7 ohm resistor to control the brightness as i will be using it in my car. Thanks for a great product. :-) (Posted on 6/11/13)

Great little screen. The back light is very dim. Any chance i can rewire it to the 5v supply of my UNO rev 3? (Posted on 6/11/13)
