Raspberry Pi 2 with Tontec Touchscreen

Post by PA7PF » Fri Sep 21, 2018 10:06 am

Hi,

I have here a Raspberry Pi 2 with a Tontec Touchscreen. Is it possible to use this screen instaed of the OLED for Pi Star?

It is this one:

By looking at the pictures in the 'ad' I would have to say no, as many of the pins you need are taken up by the MMDVM or Jumbo or Zum or whatever boards. I am no expert and you can certainly try but on visual from details given, no.

Hardware gurus, prove me wrong.
