My MacbookPro has Bluetooth 4.0 and osx is 10.13.6. Bluetooth connection to MPPT 75/15 does not work. The blue LED on MPPT flashes, but connecting stucks at 20% and does not finish! Please help me to solve the problem.

As I know, Bluetooth connection is supported only on Android and iOS devices. Mac and PC are not supported.

@michael22 The basics, ensure you have a correct pin entered when first paired. Delete pairing and start again. The connection is actually done via the Victronconnect app. Don't try to connect via the bluetooth device option first and then start the app. I don't use Mac so suspect it is similar to ipad.
