Projected capacitance or just Capacitive touch?

i.e. multi-touch or single touch output?

Do you want this to be supplied bonded to the 3.5 inch display or just the touch screen and controller board?

Hello Andy,
As long as it's not resistive, I'm alright. I also don't care much about multi touch but it'd be neat to have it, so yes why not. Lastly, I want to use it on top of the PiJuice which will be on top of the Pi so that I have a portable Pi.

Thanks for your help!

I have been looking, and like you I can't find any 3.5" Capacitive touch screens (of either technolohy).

There are plenty or 'ebay' type resellers claiming capacitive touch screens until you look at them in more detail and they too are resistive touch screens...

/Me hates it when they advertise one thing and describe the product as something else...

Me too. I guess I'll have to go with a resisitve, unless if you know any 5 inch that is capacitive? That's be great!

5" pcap touch screen displays are available

This *looks* suitable: I only offer this as a suggestion - I have NOT purchased / tried one of these displays, and have no idea *if* it will actually work as advertised...

If you do give it a try please do post back how you get on

Good look
