"oh it said it was HD44780 i thought that ment it was compatable"

It is compatable. You  just have to hook it up and code it a different way. Search!! Search!!

This is not serial or i2c enabled. You want one that is. This will still work but you are going to use a ton of outputs to make it go.

You want the serial option.
