This includes all files, images, and documentation located within these webpages. Make sure you have FULLY studied the information presented. This so WHEN something goes wrong, not IF, that YOU are ready to handle your situation on your own.
I am forced by long term medical conditions and disabilities to slow this down to a crawl. YES, this is why you're mostly on your own. DO NOT EVER download any of my files from another website. A Ham did this on 04/29/20, they learned a valuable lesson, the display was temporally bricked. We got that one Display back working again, yet, don't take any chances.
There will never be a charge for what I provide here or will it be code for a commercially made hotspots only. SO PLEASE, get my ALL of my files directly from this site, ONLY. Use the checksums files that I provide. If any file doesn't pass a checksum test, THEN DON'T USE IT!
The History Behind My Screens
Keep It Simple Screens for Nextion Displays, or KISS/ND, was born out of necessity. My eyesight is not good, I'm legally blind. Trying to watch the screen on the handheld for contact info was not good and the screen that came on my hotspot wasn't built for poor eyesight either. So, instead of complaining, I decided to program my own screens for my hotspot that I could see better.
When another Amateur Radio Operator heard that I was making my own screens, they wanted to try them. This is turn gave birth to creating even more types, sizes, and orientations. This then spread word of mouth and suddenly I needed a place to host them, this webpage was born. I then gave in to requests for Nextion Basic versions, and this grew even more.
This webpage has become a looking place not just for visually impaired screens, it has become a place to look for all screen types, sizes, and landscape orientations for Amateur Radio Hotspots. So, over the August / September 2019 time frame, a version was put together for every display type, size, and landscape orientation.
As God takes care of me, my daily needs, and some of my wants, I do, as I can, freely provide the files on this website below. Creating these files below is a hobby that keeps me busy around my remaining abilities and keeps my mind off my disabilities, which can be overwhelming on the best of days.

The public links to Amateur Radio CSV File Databases are no longer supported. My eye sight is not improving and now the doctor is telling me to take longer breaks inbetween using my eyes. Please accept my apologies, you'll have to look elsewhere for these types of databases.
The Legalities Of Free Software
I’ve done my best to compile and present these files compiled by the latest Nextion GUI version. Even so, the risk of using these files falls solely on those who download them and install them. There could be errors in the code, omissions, may not work completely, and/or work at all. Like I have said, I’ve done as best as I can.
Since I’m not in control of the downloading and installing of the correct file to the correct display, YOU, the end user accepts the ALL responsibility for anything that could just happen to go wrong when programming/reprogramming YOUR Nextion Display. Though downloading and installing is usually flawless, Murphy’s Law still applies.
Also, I can’t control if the associated driver, Nextion Display Driver, is installed properly. Even though there are a set of installation instructions on the internet, certain settings need to be setup properly before it is installed. Then afterwards, if certain settings are changed, this could cause the display to completely or partially stop working.
I share my code files here with everyone “COPYRIGHT FREE USE ONLY”. This code has my permission to be installed on ANY Amateur Radio MMDVM Hotspot / Repeater Nextion Display.
This means that it may be installed on a single device or commercially sold in bulk devices without any further permissions from me. AND, this means that the warranty of any device using this code belongs solely between the seller and buyer. I've made no money off creating this code or the sale of any Hotspots / Repeaters.
All of the files are now being shared.
Ok, there is NONE. Your mostly on your own now, the source code is downloadable.
