New PI3 came this week, hats off to Copperhill Technologies for getting a replacement out so fast. Also purchased a Bluetooth keyboard and 7" touch screen.
Issues at this point:
- need a 5V 2.5A power source (purchased a 3A, as I need to power PI, PICAN and screen)
- Kivy app shows on screen but touch screen not working, may need to start from CLI and not desktop, but with power issue did not want to continue testing
- with the PICAN on the PI cannot connect jumpers from screen control board to GPIO, ordered and extender with longer pins
Good link for connecting PI3 to touchscreen.
