Connecting a second smart MPPT to a GX/multiplus

I would like to add a second MPPT to my Venus GX/Multi setup.

The GX has a limited number of VE ports, with the existing MPPT using the last port.

Can I use smart networking to sync the MPPTs over bluetooth?

or do I need to use a USB dongle to cable the new MPPT to the GX/multi?

You have to use the VE.direct to USB cable. If needed you can also use a USB hub.

Is this really necessary? I have two SmartSolar units synchronized via Smart networking and only one is connected to my ColorControl GX via VE.Direct
