No temperature displayed in VRM Dashboard

I used to be able to see the battery temperature on the main Dashboard. I recently made a few changes to my setup and now the temperature has disappeared. The changes made were:

1) Removed BMV-702 and installed SmartShunt

2) Installed a BMS and connected to the VenusGX via CanBus

3) Updated MultiPlus firmware to latest and enabled ESS


The MultiPlus, SmartShunt, and BMS each have a sensor and are reporting temperature. I can see it in the Remote Console and on VRM if I configure an Advanced Widget, but I can't seem to make it show on the Dashboard. Appreciate any advice, thank you!

There have been a lot of enhancements to the dashboard recently. The changes, which seem to coincide, may have removed it.

I'l l report it as a bug for you.

Hi @jjs029 ,

After @kevgermany reported it, we checked, and indeed its a bug. Its being fixed soon, a few weeks max.

The issue that temperature will be missing on the battery box in the overview happens when there are multiple “ battery monitors”, in your case the BMV or SmartShunt and a BMS.

Thank you for reporting it!
