    As far as I can see from a simple Google search it's compatible with the HD44780 controller so it should work fine with LCDOUT. But, since it's 4 lines by 40 characters it uses TWO controllers so it needs to TWO separate Enable-lines, something LCDOUT doesn't support directly.

    You could solve that by externally (to the PIC and controlled by the PIC) gate the enable line to either input on the LCD module.
