Wiring of Pi 3 & Amp2 & 7" touchscreen.

Currently I use an Amp+. This means I have to use a separate power supply for the display. This does not work very reliably, I usually need 2-3 reboots before I finally get the display recognized.

Therefore the new Amp2 intrigues me: Only one power supply needed!

How do I wire up this combination? The official recommendation from the display is to power the Display via its USB connector, and use a patch cable from the display to the 5V / Ground pins to power the Pi.

Obviously this will not work, so how do I power the display once the Amp2 is (physically) using up all of the pins?
