Question
Do you know of any electrochromic displays for scrolling text? Preferably with small pixels and not giant numbers and letters created from the same simple alarm clock display? Maybe even that simple images can be displayed?

Answer
It is an area of great interest nowadays but it is still esoteric and a developing technology - or at least implementation.

The above wiki page gives a background of the technology.

You might want to contact the Donnelly Corporation as they seem to be making a business for this type of small display to be used in GPS devices.  See their patent which can link you to the patent holder:
