I am considering a FEZ Hydra as the basis of a rally computer. It will use GPS data to determine speed distance traveled etc. I am considering the 3.5" touch screen as a display/input device, but I am not sure what the driver is capable of.
Is it easy to display text on the LCD screen? I would have an odometer (distance traveled) and time of day shown in two rows of large text. Will this require that I generate bitmaps and load those or does the LCD support writing of text with specified fonts etc. For input the LCD would display a keypad and sense where it is touched to determine what key was pressed.
