I have purchased a BerryGPS-IMU-3 and a PiScreen 2. Ideally I would like to connect and use them both with my Pi-Zero, or if not possible then with my model 3b+.
Is it possible and would you be able to point me in the right direction of how to do this? It seems to me that both boards are configured to use the same pins.March 21, 2019 at 6:30 pm #7850Mark WilliamsKeymaster
both don’t use the same pins.
however, if you have the PiScreen sitting on top of the 40 pin header, you will not be able to easily access the other pins needed for the BerryGPS-IMU
If the PiScreen is sitting on the top of a Pi Zero, there will be some male pins on the PiScreen which are unused. You can see this in the red square below, I have highlighted what pins you can access to get the IMU working.
To access the Pi serial pins used by the GPS, you would need to solder some connectors to the bottom of the female header, highlighted in the yellow circle below. (the RX & TX pins are on the other side)

Thanks Mark for the update. It sounds tricky.
I assume it would be the same for the Model 3 B as it also has a 40 pin GPIO header?March 21, 2019 at 10:43 pm #7852Mark WilliamsKeymaster
yep, it would be the same
