Large fort support for 4x20 LCD

Recommended Posts

I have an idea that you could bring large font support for the 4x20 LCD

Especialy it would be nice to have 3x3 large font like this one

At least for numbers. So I can make nice readouts that can be read from afar.

 

I know that it can be done with 5" LCD but that requires designing UI as a webpage and is a lot of work for simple hacks.

I have two litte todlers that will wake up any moment and you really made me do late in night.... :)

 

Prints a 4 digit readout in a nice large font...
