Re: New Victron Bluetooth Firmware

Another vote for changing the pin code. So easy for someone to accidentally destroy your battery bank, particularly if you are using some of the more modern battery chemistries.

I won’t go into the possibility of deliberate sabotage.

Re: New Victron Bluetooth Firmware

Not sure if it happened to anyone else, but I found that other devices running the Victron Connect app needed to connect to each of the controllers and sensors at least once to start displaying the extra Bluetooth broadcast data. It's like the app has to be told the data is available now.

Re: New Victron Bluetooth Firmware

They have recently added an open Bluetooth GATT data advertisement to the smartshunt , I wonder is this it now added to other devices.

Seems that they have added it to some but not all. At least my mains charger does not appear to implement a GATT server, while the shunt, battery sense and solar regulators do.

Same. Had to connect to each device once for the Home Screen to display the data.

It even displays if another device is connected to it, just gray in color but still shows live data.

Overall I’m happy with this new feature.
