the NEW Cerbo GX - specs?

Has anyone seen specs for the Cerbo GX? And, when it will be available for purchase? I was about to buy an Octo GX, but now I see this device referenced in some Victron marketing materials, and I want to know more about the Cerbo.

Hi all, thanks for your interest!


Top secret is a big word ;o). but we’re working to get all info & specs on paper.

Current expected availability is February; I’m ofcourse hoping that its sooner; but in terms of manufacturing and shipping I think that sooner is not too realistic. And availability will be limited in the beginning; production ramp up takes a while.

Webpage for both Cerbo GX and its (optional) display accessory the GX Touch 50 are both online now. Next I’ll work on adding the specs into the GX Product overview page as a column.

Software is the same as you’re all familiar with: Venus OS. GUI is (for now) the same as you’re familiar with; as are most other features.

Main new thing is addition of bluetooth: you can setup ethernet & wifi networking via bluetooth; which is handy: easier and faster to do than joining the built-in access point. More reading out & setting up via bluetooth is coming later.

Ps wrt comparison to Octo GX: the Cerbo has more cpu power (dual core rather than the single core); so will be able to handle more devices.

And it has 3 built-in vedirect ports.

Looks like a great fit for my needs... My dealer had planned for the Octo... but this Cerbo has a great mix of features. I'll let my dealer's engineer/designer confirm all the details, but I think I'll have a Cerbo in the spring!

Yep... top secret. :) Yes, what I've seen is what you linked. I guess I'll have to wait. But the kid in me, hates waiting! -- I've never lined up for the newest iPhone... but I've delayed purchases a few times, to see if the new model better fits my needs.
