Import Venus GX configuration

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to import a pre-made configuration on a Venus GX device ? To save time at production level.

A question was asked a year ago, and it was, according to @mvader (Victron Energy) on the list (Link), but I can't find anything on my GX that would do the job.

Thanks in advance for your answer.


Best regards,

The code for this feature is now mostly developed, and slated for a potential inclusion in an upcoming Venus v2.90 release, but it has also been pushed back before so it is no guarantee.

As an alternative to Victron's work, I've added a backup/restore mechanism as part of GuiMods/PackageManager. It saves and restores most but not all settings between units.

https://github.com/kwindrem/GuiMods

I'll back out this mechanism when Victron gets their system working. But mine also backs up/restores icons that appear on the overview pages, and "options" for all of my packages. I'd retain these pieces even after switching to the Victron settings backup/restore mechanism.
