Description: Most widgets could benefit from a shiny touchscreen interface. Unfortunately, it’s usually not easy to hook up a touchscreen and driving a display is often too taxing on your controller. 4D Systems has solved this problem by creating a series of touchscreens with on-board controllers then combining them with adapters for popular platforms like Raspberry Pi and Arduino!
The Raspberry Pi Display Module Pack includes a uLCD-43-PT 4.3" LCD Display with Resistive Touch, a 4D Pi Adapter and 5 way interface cable. It customizes the uLCD-43-PT Display specifically for interfacing with the Raspberry Pi, to provide a quick and easy interface without any wiring hassles.
The RPi Display Kit lets you quickly connect the 4D Pi Adapter Shield to your Raspberry Pi, connect the 5 way cable between the Adapter and the Display Module, and be connected in seconds to start programming. There’s even a comprehensive library written to communicate with the Raspberry Pi, allowing Visi-Genie (A serial-based interface design tool) events to be easily understood by the Raspberry Pi and user code.
Like the other displays from 4D Systems you will need a USB Serial adapter to program this module. Unfortunately, our FTDI Basic Breakout won’t work. Check the Recommended Items section below for 4D Systems' µUSB-PA5.
Note: This is not a monitor for the Raspberry Pi, it is an LCD module that requires programming.

And the reply from Sparkfun was to contact 4D Sparkfun wiping hands clean … awesome!
Hi, I’ve contacted you directly via email. Hopefully we can help sort this out with your module. Thanks
