Venus Gx with BMV-712smart - Which is the data source?

Greetings All. I'm just diving into this world and I'm having difficulting understanding the relationship between the BMV and the VenusGx. Specifically, If I'm using the Lynx Shunt to provide input to the VenusGX, does the BMV receive the battery data from the Venus via the VE.Direct link, without the need for a second shunt (the one that comes with the BMV)?

Or, is the BMV a transmit device only, which would make the Lynx Shunt input to the VenusGX redundant and unnecessary?

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.

The BMV is a data source which sends its data to the VenusGX.
You then get to choose which source you want to use for your battery monitor from within the VenusGX menus. You can only choose one, so the other one will be redundant.
