Ninja2,
It is going to be a tachometer. (Work in progress)
BUT it crashes after 5-15 seconds.

Also I can not get the value to display as text. Not sure what I am doing wrong yet.

I only started programing and Arduino last year so it all is taking heaps of time to figure out.

Cheers,
Alf

yes it's amazing how many hours can dissappear in Arduino code alone, but you're into Arduino to Android as well which has got to be even more challenging. I want to get into controlling Android from Arduino soon ... more hours will dissappear!

All,
I just worked out why my Android app was crashing (Not the USBdroid or my App) It seems that the SD card is the issue. Without it inserted the App keeps running for hours, but with it in the App will crash after seconds. I will format it to see if somthing on the card is causing the issue.
