Hey all, would anyone happen to know if it could be possible to repurpose an old smartphone to perform dashboard functions for e-scooters?
I have nowhere near the the technical experience to prove or disprove myself, but thought it could be viable since there is a lot of tech crammed into even older smartphones and we have apps that basically mirror the information OEM dashes and controllers provide.

I figure it would help somewhat in lowering ewaste, give us a nice touchscreen interface with our scoots, and provide us with a new project to tinker with. Would be cool if it could be done somehow and was hoping someone with intimate technical knowledge could voice a opinion on the matter. Thanks!

I'm actually surprised this hasn't recieved any bites yet. It's undoubtedly possible by all means but obviously requires some upper tech knowledge to write a app for what ever Operating System and associated software as well as driver's ect. About the closest thing I've seen was the big stupid yellow Bolt scooters. They dam near just had a bolted (not so bolted) down touch screen phone for there dashboard that ran off of Android. Hopefully someone can get ahold of someone with the brains to get us all started on such a build. Come on scooter people!
