Touchscreen

Thu Nov 23, 2017 7:25 pm

Can anyone recommend me a touchscreen that is 7" big, that uses capacitive touch and that doesn't use GPIO pins or disable SPI. Also, it needs to about £35 or under. Is there such a screen or will I be forced to spend big on the Official touchscreen.

Can't get it at your budget price, but for £53.99 the official RPF display

doesn't use any GPIO. It does use 5V pin#2 & GND pin#6 for power.

Thanks for the help. I will get the Official Touchscreen. As it is over £50 I get a free Pi Zero as well so that is a good bonus! Just got to spent two pounds on something to get free delivery.
