Upgrade to Bluetooth with Victron Controller?

Hi,

Recently purchased a VW Camper with Victron Solar installation. I wanted to upgrade to enable Bluetooth option with iOS but not sure if its possible.

The following controller is installed and working, but wondering if I can add/install the Bluetooth dongle if compatible hardware. OR something else?

Controller: Victron Energy BlueSolar 20A PWM-Light Solar Charge Controller 12/24V 20 Amp

Any help appreciated?

Thanks Matt

Compatible Victron products

The dongle can be connected to almost all Victron products that have a built-in VE.Direct port. For a full list see the Compatible Victron products section of the VictronConnect manual

The PWM solar controllers don't have ve.direct so cannot be used with the bluetooth dongle.
