    Do you have a full part number for the display? Quite often, the data sheet gives a recommended connector.

    here are the documents I got with it: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10627065/LCD.lbr
    I think its a eagle part library file (it loaded up in eagle anyway)

    thats the only datasheet I got with the LCD, Its the controllers datasheet.

    Apparently there are tons of 30 pin connectors or 40 pin connectors but no 37 pins.

    I saw a video on how to directly solder the connector, it just looks like something you only really get one shot at so i might just put it on hold until i get some more SMD solder practice in :)

    Look here:

    As you will see there are a huge number of connectors available. Unfortunately, just knowing the number of pins is not enough. That is why you need the information from data sheet for the complete display. You might be able to find a part number on the display -- probably on the back.

    The connector is 1mm separation, 37 pins, single sided. You could solder it directly to the board I linked I was just hoping to find a zif style connector I could instead solder to the board. There doesn't seem to be one for the 37 pin connectors (all I've ever seen is them soldered directly to the controller board.

    That link lists tons of flex connectors, the problem is as soon as you select 37 pins and 1mm spacing the list goes down to 3. Of those 3 they are all out of stock, all have "call" for pricing, and all require a minimum order of 1000+. :(

    Are you sure if the 1mm pitch? Could it be 0.8mm?

    No, im not. I'll measure it with a micrometer when I get home. The seller "says" its 1.0mm spacing but he wont be the first ebay seller totally wrong about his own products lol :D
