Re: Tell us about your projects...

Unfortunately for me I lost out on the chance to take part in this thread and qualify to win a free copy of FC5 partly due to delays in a code issue in FC4. See my query on PIC16F88 ADC errors. But I managed to modify the code and have finally managed to launch the product onto the market, but 6 mon...

Re: Speedometer

Hi Willem

I think your problem is that your are trying to carry out float maths on an integer. I have made the changes for you, have not tried it myself so no 100% guarantee :D , but should point you in the right direction.

Goodluck
