Cache berry pi success

As some will remember I started off with jclements cacheberry pi project before moving to aurock s which is an updated version.

After having problems with the i2c lcd screen aurock pointed me to his development area and bingo the hd44780 file worked perfectly.

I need to have another look at the ublok gps as I couldn't get that working, so for now have the adafruit gps wired up.

There still needs to be some work on the calculating of nearest cache as it keeps getting stuck on one or jumping to another miles away, but so far I'm happy.  

I'm guessing this could be used for speed cameras or petrol stations providing you have the data in csv form.


  1. How did you control the lcd? I have one just like it but not exactly sure how to drive it.

  2. Try this version of the files:

    Put LCDd.conf in /etc and the hd44780.so in /usr/lib/lcdproc

  3. I have also done some more posts since including about the case. Please take a look at the rest of my blog for further updates.
