The little wheels in my brain are spinning furiously on this one, but I can't find a good place to start. I've seen some mods where people replaced the OEM clock with a digital display of some sort, and I'd like to do something similar.
I've really wanted to break into microcontrollers, so I'm thinking about using an arduino or similar with an LCD display to display various info.
After reading about Google's ADK, and that a standard Arduino can work with it, I think it would be awesome if a display could read song titles and patch through to my aftermarket stereo.
Basically I'm envisioning a display that only requires a mini-USB plug to my Android phone, and could read GPS data, songs, ????
Does this sound remotely interesting to anyone? My background is in mechanical engineering, but these microcontrollers fascinate me.
