Creating graphics for the Nokia 5110 display using an Arduino and the Adafruit Library
I use the Nokia 5110 display in many of my projects. It is inexpensive and reliable. I also use the Adafruit library for this display as it is easy to use and feature rich. The only issue I had with this library was displaying icons and other graphics on it.
All the tutorials I could find dealt with how to concert a bitmap to a format this display could use were with a utility called LCD Assistant. And this does not work with the Adafruit library. This tutorial will take you through the steps how to create graphics using the Adafruit Library
