Arduino Boost Gauge Rev.2

So I had some disappointments with my first gauge that I decided to go full out this time. This time I will be using an OLED screen as the regular LCD was impossible to see with my sunglasses on and the refresh rate was some what crappy.

I will be integrating a barometric and temperature sensor known as the BMP180. It’s a highly accurate Bosch sensor and can be had for a whole $3. This will help to create a more accurate boost gauge that allows for altitude changes.

The MAP sensor will most likely stay the same, but I am exploring different options.

I will be using an Arduino nano this time and by using the I2C bus, will be able to utilize two OLED screens and the BMP180 all on the same two wires.
