The included drivers for the ILI9341 are only written for 8bit wiring configs, so I got an Image of sorts, but just in blue.
After reading every thread on the ugfx forum relating to the ILI9341 I found this one which explained what I need to do to get the other 8 bits back.
Tiny tweak of the code and hey presto!
Now that I have working LCD drivers I can push on with canbus and gauges!
I'll be uploading a complete ChibiStudio project for this board once I have all the kinks worked out.
