On the AnyTone 878UV I can choose to display the frequency or the channel name or frequency (Settings->Radio Set->4 Ch.Name). But seems to me like there's enough screen real estate to be able to show both. Is there a way?

I've also looked for a way to map a PF button to switching between Channel and Frequency being displayed, but so far have had no luck.

I'm posting this answer —by someone else— below. I'm assuming that it's a good one.

You CAN assign a button to switch between Name and Frequency.

Menu/Settings/Radio Set/(choose key like PF3 Long Press)/Ch.Name — When pressed, it will alternate between Frequency and Name on the display.

Per Thomas's comment, this required a firmware update to v. 1.21 to work.

    $\begingroup$ Yes! With the caveat that the firmware I had at the time (1.17) did not support it. I just updated to 1.21 and now it is possible to choose Ch.Name for PF1 keys. $\endgroup$ – Thomas Nov 22 '20 at 15:32

To the best of my knowledge, both of your features are not implemented.

You can choose either name or frequency in "channel mode" and assign a key to switch between channel and VFO mode.
