The one I used is was 7"
Started putting the GPS together now that the Display arrived. Having to build my own PCBs for the switches and POTs. But coming along.

Anyway powered up the display and plugged in the HDMI -- Works great. It will allow you to set the resolution to 1280 or 1024 or 800x600 if your card allows the 800x600. Even will accept 1080p though that does not look great due to aspect ratio.

Anyway I can confirm the display will work.
