Multiple SmartShunts via Bluetooth to VictronConnect and Cerbo GX

I have 3 separate battery banks I want to monitor on my boat - house bank, bow thruster, and A/C. I also have 2 starter batteries which I'd monitor voltage only.

- If I install a SmartShunt 500 on each bank, can I see all 3 sets of data in VictronConnect via BlueTooth connections?

- If I add a Cerbo GX, connected via NMEA2000 to my Garmin MFD's (supports Victron), can I see all 3 sets of SmartShunt data coming from SmartShunt to Cerbo GX (via BT) and then to NMEA2000?

1. Yes of course, each SmartShunt is a individual device and can be monitored separately via VictronConnect.

2. Not sure about the NMEA part but you have to connect the SmartShunts via VE.direct to the Cerbo you can't use BT for that.
