Connect PIC32MX470 Curiosity board to TFT Display

Hi!
I am new to Pic32. I bought PIC32MX470 Curiosity Development Board, but then I found that its PMP pin already assigned for LED or others purpose.

Is there any method to use this board to connect to TFT display?
It seems my TFT display uses ILI9341 as its graphics driver. And if possible, I want to use 8 bit parallel communication.

Need your help.

    Size? Resolution ? Pin out of your Display ?

    Yes , ILI9341 Support 18/16/9/8 Bits.
    You can also use SPI.

    Thanks for your reply.

    My TFT display is 3.5 inch, I bought from AliExpress.

    See:
    Smart Electronics 3.5 Inch TFT Touch Screen LCD Module Display 320*480 with PCB Adapter 3.5'' 320x480 for arduino DIY KIT
    https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/sWlsoti

    About resolution, if possible I want to use maximum resolution (320x480). About pinout of this Display, that's one problem also, but I think I will try to guest from what's written in this board, in connector area.

    But the one that makes me confuse is, how to use PMP pin from PIC32MX470 Curiosity board?
    It seems not possible to use PMP pin here?
    We can not swap PMP pin to other pin?

    Or, what I can use is only SPI connection?

    Hi,
    I think you have a display with an ILI9488 driver, is it? Or similar...
    https://focuslcds.com/content/ILI9488.pdf
    Or an ILI9486 driver.
    https://github.com/sonicpp/ili9486
    Because the ILI9341 has only a display resolution about 240RGBx320 dots and 262k colors.

    Gerald, thanks for your comment.

    Honestly, I don't know exactly which driver it is, because I don't receive any document when I received it. After I search in Internet, I found this link:

    https://m.alibaba.com/pro...1054477&redirect=1

    Picture is exactly same with my display. And it said that graphics driver is ILI9341. But as you said, in this link its resolution is 240 x 320. So, maybe you are right. I will check it again.

    Anyway, it seems not possible to use PMP using Curiosity board?
