The Matrix Orbital driver does not contain any character mapping functions.
Unfortunately the character table may differ from one model to another
and even for the same model with different hardware revisions.
As Matrix Orbital seems to use character displays based on standard
controllers, it might be possible to reuse the hd44780 character mapping
tables. I will put this on the to do list. Until then, you will have to
modify the source and remap those characters you need.
