I have the Sparkfun Serial LCD working with a chipKIT UNO. I used +5v, GND, and TX connections. I used UART1(pin 40 - Serial1) so that Serial/USB could still be used for debug messages. No problem has been seen with the 3.3v logic level. No level converter seems necessary.

Hi James - great to hear. I'm looking for a suitable library for driving a serial LCD..for a project of mine. What one did you use - can you provide a link? Rich

I wrote my own code to drive it....learning experience... I didn't use a library.
