In a recent post I ran through setting a Raspberry Pi as a DMR hotspot using a DVMega and MMDVMHost.
MMDVMHost natively supports various displays including various TFT's manufactured by Nextion, 128x64 OLED screens commonly seen in Arduino projects, and HD44780 based LCD displays.
I wanted something colourful but still compact, so I went with a 2.4" Nextion screen available on Ebay here for around £12.50. Shipping from China took just over 2 weeks which is satisfactory.
I also required a USB to Serial adapter to drive the display, as the Raspberry Pi's built in serial port was already being used to control the DVMega. This was purchased from Ebay here for £2.70.
