Perfect
I'll later post a little more details etc. on the project - mind if I use your picture now that you have confirmed that it works?

Now, to get rid of the chinese-letters, in the main function you can find 3 if-sentences called
if (1==0) {
bla bla
}

If you first change the 2 first to 1==1 upload the code and wait 10-20 seconds (it will upload text-characters etc). Make them 1==0 again and then do it with the last one upload and set it to 1==0 again. Not user-friendly, but hey, you are using a pretty early version

Dennis,
Of course you can use any of these pictures - I consider them more yours then mine anyway I could never have done this !! I'll keep updating the schematic as we add the components.
What do you mean, "you are using a pretty early version". If you are talking the MAX7456, it is new ! - just received it a few days ago for this project
Ya this Chinese letter thing is not too friendly - let me try and see if I can do it
I see you included a bunch of stuff for it in your download. We really need to make it easier for simple folks like me

No worries, it's easier in the next version.
You don't need all the extra material I have included, all the characters, arrows etc. is already included in the code

By pretty early version I referred to the software-version

Rick, you can upload this version.
It will automatic upload the characters for MAX7456. Just note that MAX7456 must be connected while you program the controller

Dennis,

Easy enough!!! (see pict ! )
This was with the old version and your instructions -
I'll try your new version in a bit .

Haha, great!
The new version just does it all automatic first time it boots.

There is also a lot of minor changes, but it looks the same

The pro mini schematic don't use the same pinout.. Explains the problem.

I think your Uno is a better candidate.
We need this to work with the Pro Mini also - You thinking it won't ?
I can't figure the pins - guess I need to study them a bit more ?

For example
GPS -> Arduino UNO

GND - > GND
5 V - > 5 V
IN - > PD1 (??)
OUT - > PD0 (??)

Dennis,

V2 compiles first time with both mini pro and uno and looks excellent as in the pict I posted previously
I'm assuming V2 loaded the English text with the mini pro because I had only done it manually with the Uno - so I think it worked perfectly

When I input video, it threw the text around (see Pict).
- problem maybe ntsc verses pal?

Also I hooked gps-out to rx0 uno and gps-in to tx1 uno and "still waiting"
I believe the baud rate for my gps is 38400 - change the 9600 in config.h
//#define BAUD 9600
#define BAUD 38400
not sure if that was the right place to change things ?

Tried mini pro again - tried to read Arduino Mini Pro schematic -
(hard to understand for me
UNO -> MINI PRO
cs=pb2=pin 10 -> pin 12 ?
sdin=pb3=pin 11 -> pin 11 ?
sclk=pb5=pin 13 -> pin 9 ?
sdout=pb4 =pin 12 -> pin 10 ?

Didn't work - gray screen

// General configuration
#define VideoSignalType_PAL
//#define VideoSignalType_NTSC

// Unit system
#define UnitSystem METRIC
///#define UnitSystem IMPERIAL

// gps baud rate

Dennis,
Is this looking correct for the UNO ?
I have a hayday reading these arduino schematics
Probably because I never have
