Definitely the more doable solution for non EE’s.
Something like Coco drivewire but more portable. Pi with battery.
The serial connection is certainly faster than the built in display, at
least for scrolling text.
Downside is you lose the port for other purposes (tpdd access) unless you
packet multiplex. That would mean more software tricks on model t side.
