    Sorry, no that didn't help.

    In any case this probably isn't a Buster problem. Thanks for your assistance

    Thanks Mark,

    I was eventually able to install fbi, it may have been a proxy issue at my end that someone silently fixed (pure speculation). The mplayer2 still won't install however; not a big deal for me since I'm not planning on playing videos.

    However I haven't been able to get pygame to display to fb1 (just opens to the HDMI screen on fb0). This was using the example at https://ozzmaker.com/faq/use-python-display-information-piscreen/

    I've ended up using the solution posted here:

    I.e. opening the frame buffer directly to update: f = open("/dev/fb1","wb"). Is there something I need to install, perhaps an "SDL" package?

    Thanks Peter, those commands did the trick nicely.

    Referring to the Assisted GPS fix page also helps, so thanks for that as well.

    Thanks for the quick reply Peter! I'll give your instructions a go, and look forward to seeing the guide when it's ready.

    Regarding your explanation for RX/TX pins, I'm guessing that this only applies when the module is connected to the Pi GPIO pins? Ideally I'd like to leave the GPIO pins free for other modules.
