Cerbo GX temperature probe - how to change from celsius to Fahrenheit?

I have added the proper Victron temp probe to my Cerbo GX. It shows fine in the remote console, but it only shows as Celsius and I'm not able to find where to change that to Farenheit. Any suggestions?


I also can't figure out how to enable the temp probe on the "advanced" page to actually show a chart of the data, it's only showing in the device list now.


Thanks for the assistance!

Looking for this myself, can't find it anywhere in the menus.


I'm still stumped, if you solve the mystery let me know!

Ok, I found some answers. To get the temp to show on the VRM advanced page in a graph, click on the 3 sliders in the top right corner of that page, "widgets" i think you can figure it out from there. To change to F in VRM, click "back" in the VRM top left corner window until you see "profile" then click "profile" again, temp units is at the bottom of that page. Should have been in "settings" and should also be on the Cerbo settings menu as well.

Stuck the temp sensor #25 in the freezer, fast drop. 24 is next to the cerbo, going to put it in the engine room later.

I had tried previously to enable them in widgets but I didn't see how to enable it. I've done it now, thanks for the tip. I notice you have the same glitch that I do - it's displaying temp in Fahrenheit on the graph but under Temp it's showing the value for Celsius.


Thanks again -

I now happily have my temperature set to ºF on the VRM Portal, but is there any way I can view it in ºF on the Touch 50 / Remote Console without having to do an offset and scale and (and still have a ºC next to the number)?

Really, I wish there was a page on the Touch 50 that would display the temperature readings (in ºF or ºC), like the forthcoming page for tank levels. Even better than that would be a fully customizable page that could include any of the available information and controls for connected gear. Am I missing how to do that or do I need to put this forward as a feature request?

Can you check if there is an option or feature request to fix the cerbo gx display only doing Celsius? My wife isn't good at in her head converting C to F :-)

The temp number is off in the VRM which appears the conversation is being done to second time

18C to 64.4F (or display in VRM just switches out the C to F)


Also I can't seem to get the Cerbo GX screen to display Fahrenheit
