Has anyone used the pic to driver a graphic lcd instead of a character one? If so how much work is it compare to the character one?

RTFM as we say in the trade, check the manual for the pic basic, theres are example circuits to show possible connections. however note that using a graphic LCD is a little more complex 2 reasons. a) the display is dumb and has to have fonts loaded to it which have to be included in your program listings. and b) there are a few more data wires etc.
once you get it working it'll bring a whole new light than over using a standard 2 line LCD.

GLCD's are great fun and really easy to use with the right code.

Here is some examples of what can be done with them
