Just a side note, if anyone is interested in the brackets and button caps I used, I’d be happy to share the stl files.
Yes please. Always nice having options. Gotta love 3d printers. Wish a vmu shell stl existed.

Re: My GEM VMU

Great clean build! Silly question but I couldn't figure out where the test pads for about a dozen points were. I have seen the diagram but for example, for LCD DC, it's point J but uh where is the partner pad? I don't see it anywhere on the PCB. Same with the other LCD, also BATT MON, TXD, RXD, etc...

Kite has the pinout on the FAQ, double check to make sure the pins and the breakout points match up. Also...

GEM Blank screen

I changed the file on the sd to run debug and the green light on the pi flashes like it is reading. Backlight comes on for the lcd. Is thei...
