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.

Got everything set up on the pi to read the CAN-BUS, was connecting to it through the ODB-II port for now (ultimately will use the radio harness as it has the high and low can connections), but the ODB-II is convenient and has +12V power - so good for testing.
Pi power on, no readings, brought it back in a changed some settings, plugged it back and now no WiFi -- research seems to point to bad WiFi card, as Bluetooth is out too. Contacted Copperhill and they are sending a new pi.
