Inclinometer for cerbo

Is there an inclinometer available (for RV or boats) that can be used (and monitored) with the VenusOS?

Perhaps like simarine has:

Ruuvi sensor can provide acceleration for all 3 axes. So you can use it for this purpose if you want.

Ah, ok

But there isn‘t a GUI to show it on the cerbo?

The Ruuvi app on my phone only shows acceleration, no obsolete rotational position. So I'm not sure you'd get it to function as an inclinometer.

I 'm not sure how useful inclinometer readings on the GX device will be. For me, I want this information while setting up the RV before I even open it's door. True, if you have access to the GX GUI from a phone or tablet, that might work.

For me, I'm happy with LevelMatePro and it's own app. I can level the trailer side to side from inside the tow vehicle.

Would like this feature on Victron as its one if not the only thing missing that the simarine has.
