Waveshare 5" GPIO HDMI - anyone got it working?

Hi all,

has anyone successfully managed to connect Waveshare 5" GPIO HDMI version to Raspberry Pi 3 and have touch functionality running ok?
I’m considering purchasing this exact touch display, however the topic I found https://volumio.org/forum/wave-share-and-volumio-t5439.html is not quite clear for me.

I found somewhere that the USB version of this touch screen works fine, however the one I target is more compact (no cables required, only GPIO and HDMI bridge).
