with only those two components ?

Or is the Control GX required for that functionality?
nope. The BMV only sends the battery voltage, the charger cannot measure it precisely. Tail current is not transferred (yet) AFAIK. there is no direct connection between the BMV and the MPPT. The Quattro has its own voltage sense cable, so the BMV is out of the game there. Also there are VEDirect and VEBus interfaces, that cannot communicate to eachother, that works over a color gx or the headless unit
