I have replaced my failed Simrad A70 with Tinypilot and am very pleased with it. We have covered many hundreds of miles this year with excellent GPS control  via OpenCPN. This is the future, I will not go back to expensive off the shelf autopilots. However we miss the course information normally displayed on previous autopilots, namely ; WPT - Waypoint name,  DTW - Distance to next waypoint, XTD - Cross track distance and SOG - Speed over ground.  I know this could be provided by a tablet or phone running openCPN but that is not a reliable solution for a small boat in bad weather.  Would it be possible to offer a small display unit that could show that information. Maybe someone to could point me to a design using a ESP8266 or similar.

Thanks to Sean for his good work.
