Off board altimeter on Dropix

I would really like a dropix with an external altimeter. So a plug where the altimeter is. We have a big pull to do boat operations and the altimeter is the one component we can’t protect with conformal coating. So I would like to make it easy to swap it out. The only alternative is to be able to swap out the dropix and that has more dependencies.

Have you thought about using the external buses to connect a second altimeter? Then the internal one could be disabled by software. Would that work with your setup?
