    ok, I received my display, now how do I know how to install it?
    it's a little confusing, so what would be the easy step by step method for an R1+? I have the display and case printed now..

    There are instructions for updating the firmware on the Robo R1 firmware page, but not sure how well they match up for a Mac

    I suspect the Arduino IDE is available for the Mac

    Sorry to jump on the thread, but I'm about to install my screen and noticed the link for the instructions is dead. Is there an alternative?

    Can not post links yet, but i found the article, look in picture attached.

    This seems to be the new instructions, just ordered an R1+ on amazon and going to be doing this upgrade as soon as it arrives!

    Long since installed the screen and got everything going. Great $15 investment.
