BMV-602S & VE.Direct Bluetooth (or NMEA2000) Dongle

Hello,

I recently purchased a sailboat with a BMV-602S Battery Monitor. I was wondering if anyone has had luck with the VE.Direct Bluetooth Dongle or NMEA2000 drop cable working with a -600 series unit.

The compatibility list for the bluetooth dongle only lists -700 series BMV Battery monitors, but the interface/plug on the back of the -600 & -700 series monitors looks the same. Before I buy one, I'd ilke to know if it'll work for my BMV-602S monitor.

Thanks!

The BMV-600 is over 5 years EOL, there is no more support.

And there are no cables or adapters to connect VE.direct to a BMV-600, the connectors and the used data protocol are totally different.
