Victron connect android app add classic Bluetooth scan feature

Hi everyone!,


This is my first post and my first question, I recently bought Victron Bluesolar MPPT 75/15, and I made a custom usb cable using Usb to UART module and I could connect my controller to the victron connect software on windows and the victron connect app on Android, but I wanted to connect wirelessly with Bluetooth, so I have used HC - 05 Bluetooth module and connected it directly to the victron bluesolar Mppt to the communication port.

By doing this, I was able to access and change the configuration of the Mppt controller via Bluetooth from victron connect software in windows, but I also want to access my controller via Android app instead of turning on the computer every time.

So I request to please add the classic Bluetooth scan functionality in the victron connect android app, as currently the android app only searches for Bluetooth low energy devices. But the HC-05 Bluetooth module is not Bluetooth low energy, and it's Bluetooth version is 2.0.


Thanks.

@ROHAN CHINNI C L, what setting did you use for HC - 05 Bluetooth module in order to make it work? I am trying to this on a MAC, but it doesn't work. I can connect through a simple usb to TTL adapter. For HC-05 I used the recommended settings:

Baud rate: 19200

Parity: None

Stop bits: 1

Hi @ion, I used the same settings as you have described. The OS which I was using was windows 10.
