Victron connect, Mppt chargers & bluetooth

When trying to connect a Huawei P Smart 2019 phone to a SmartSolar MPPT150/70 by Victron Connect V5.8 over Bluethooth the connection works however repsonse is 'SmartSolar BT (Rev2) update needed V2.14 - V2.19'. Doing this the update stops at 1%, and after some time: '#11 error during writing Time out' Proceedings brings me to the main screen again.

When using a VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle the communication between smartphone and charge regulator works without problems.

Same situation with SmartSolar MPPT250/85.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your assistance - Johan

I have the same problem. It is due to the phone not asking for a pairing code. I made it work by changing phone. After the updates I still can't get my P20 Pro to pair properly
