I wrote about the WiFi issue elsewhere , but I do not have first hand experience with it.

The workaround for it for now was to connect such devices to the micro USB2 port via an OTG cable and hub.

I am currently waiting for more the bugs to be worked out in the available Linux distributions made for the Odroid-N2 before I pull the trigger on upgrading to it.

PPEC is hysteresis with the addition of making predictions.
I agree it would be great if INDI EQMod could work with PECPrep used with the ASCOM version. But I expect it is a great deal of work to implement.

As far as I know it hasn't gone anywhere. But you may be interested in trying the PPEC algorithm in PHD2 as an external guider.
After a worm cycle or two it will begin to apply predictive corrections based off previous cycles. It's essentially single use PEC without the prep, and you can expect guiding to improve the longer it runs.

Interesting. I personally encountered issues with my Orion SSAG on windows 7 because I could not find a 64bit compatible ASCOM driver for it. And it appeared support for it is not happening.

I am currently seriously considering the new Odroid-N2 as an upgrade.

With public outreach in mind, it might be a good idea to generate a QR code for people to access a the stacked images over the proposed hotspot access point along with some fields to enter file name tags for What, Where and When.

It's a feature not a bug ;-)
GPSD driver gets time from the system not from gps directly. The reason is noted in the comments in the source code:
<code>
// Update time regardless having gps fix.
// We are using system time assuming the system is synced with the gps
// by gpsd using chronyd or ntpd.
</code>


It looks to me like you need to complete the configuration of NTPD to use the GPS time, then the driver should sync up.

Longer frequencies in the G band can pass through walls more easily than high frequency AC.
You might want to use a better external WiFi adapter either way.

Yes, it works with the QHY driver
