I really like the GD2 - nice work! I downloaded the library, and got some of the examples (that don't use SDcard) running on an Arduino Mega board.
I then tried compiling it on MPIDE, for the ChipKit MAX32 - initially it moaned about the PROGMEM usage (something to do with it already being a const) I then tried removing every const keyword that appeared before PROGMEM, and holy cow it works! The demos run on the PIC32 cpu that's in the chipkit boards!
So this could be a really useful set of libraries not just for Arduinos to use the FT800, but also Chipkit & Cerebot boards as well
One thing I have noticed, I seem to get some corruption in the graphics/edges on both the Mega and the Chipkit boards, still not sure if it might be a hardware thing (maybe I'm missing a pullup/pulldown on my setup)
Anyway, nice work, and I think I'm go along and buy a GD2 now!
