Can I use the VE.Direct to Bluetooth Smart dongle with an PC?

Hello,

can I use the PC Software Victron Connect also via Bluetooth?

I want to use the Bluetooth Dongle also with the IOS App, but we have a Laptop on Board and it would be good to control via the Laptop also.

Unfortunately the Bluetooth version of Victron Connect is not yet compatible with Windows.

We have a solution in progress for this, but it also depends on a third party, so we cannot fix it on our own.

It would be a really beneficial feature to be able to use a PC running windows to communicate over bluetooth with your MPPT SmartSolar controllers. Glad to hear you are working on it!!!

It's been a year and a half... any update on this? Particularly about SmartSolar 100/20-48V.
