LCD GRAPHIC 84X48 NOKIA 5110
#1
Is this the screen that is suggested for use when building a tinypilot? I seem to remember Sean saying he is using a better screen now? Does anyone know which one?

I bought these and they have worked ok so far.

I have read things saying that the quality of these displays is generally not great.  A display I bought from another seller had some black smudges along one edge, and I did have the display flicker one day while sailing, but that could have been a wiring problem (at that time I didn't have a PCB, everything was hotwired).

I had a number of 5110 display failing due to moisture and vibrations.
Sean suggested a jlx12864 , a 128x64 LCD
I have one in my parts bin with an ST7720 controller, I cannot get it to work though.
Not sure where/how to configure the display in Tinypilot, maybe need the new hat with eeprom.

the hat program reads from the hat eeprom to see which display is on the board. Most of these displays have no data output so you can not read from them to probe them in any way.

The other option is to run the hat.py script and pass the screen like "hat.py jlx12864" or hack the code also to force it if you don't have an eeprom. Otherwise it defaults to nokia because all the original tinypilot had nokia display with no eeprom.

I have been wondering what part that is.  There's a part number "JLX12864G-086":

I think it could be this one:

I'm a bit confused though, as that page says "UC1701X", whereas in another place it says ST7789:

The display has one part number and the controller another.

I'm going to make it easier to use this display soon with a config file that gets updated from eeprom. This is because sometimes eeprom fails to read at boot especially with bad connector so this would help.
