2.8" TFT Touchscreen, (ID 1770) Clarification

by Carbooster on Wed Nov 11, 2020 1:11 pm

Hello,

I am looking to purchase this LCD Touchscreen :https://www.adafruit.com/product/1770

I know it has a microSD card slot on the board. However, my understanding from reading the product description gives me the feeling I cannot use this for normal storage. What I mean by this is I am making a data logger with a touchscreen as a user interface. I would like to store any sensor data onto the sd card through the slot on the LCD board. Will I be able to use the slot on the LCD board or will I need a separate microSD card module.

Thanks,
-Cameron

The SD card slot on those are for any use you want. They don't even know they are on a display card. Its just a handy place to put one. And, once you start playing about with displays, you suiddenly find you need one for all the different things you' like to display.

If you're going to use the toudh stuff, you may want to look at the cap. touch screen. They seem to be a lot nicer to use to me.
