Car Thing Mini Dashboard

I keep hearing folks say that the soon-to-be-disabled Car Thing is too underpowered to run Android.

Sorry for being dense, but would it need to if it were repurposed as a mini-web-based Home Assistant dashboard. Seems like it would be perfect for that.

If its too underpowered to run Android, it’s too underpowered to run a browser or the companion app on top of Android - which is basically what you’d need.

Well, if you could manage to run something on it (likely Linux) with a display server and a web browser, it could work, indeed.
