Hi Sorry I should have said its a smart solar I was working fine the last couple of days but yesterday the blue tooth stopped working and I noticed that there is no "funnel" symbol on the display now

Hello @Daring

Is the Smart Solar not visible in VictronConnect or is it for example greyed out and when you press it, it gives a notification?

If it is not visible, are you sure that you have location services enabled on the phone?

When it is visible but greyed, it is necessary to power cycle the MPPT by disconnecting PV and battery for a minute. After reconnecting them (battery first), you should be able to connect again. When you are connected, please install the update to v2.37 that is available in the latest VictronConnect (v5.52), by going into the product info screen.

Regarding the symbol on the display, I am curious what symbol you are revering to as there is not a symbol that shows whether bluetooth is enabled or not.

Kind regards,

Thiemo van Engelen
