This is a nice shield. I use it with the nano which with a few wires from the shield to the nano works fine (you only need 8 wires to make it work, 6 data + 5V & GND)
Display is clear & it is working with the standard LiquidCrystal library as long as you start it with LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7) instead of the default from the sketches (actually as I do my own wiring for the nano I could easily match it if I wanted to)
For me the potmeter was trimmed completely wrong.
I thought the display was not working. (It lights up, buth nothing is seen)
You need to spin the screw many times until something is visible. After I found that it worked like a charm. Too bad it took me lots of googling to find that simple resolution.
I really would like a case where this and the keys can be visually nice be stored, rather than trying to develop myself a matching case with keys
Well worth the money, must have if you want to display data in a nice way in your project.
