how too reset a smart shunt

Hi I have a 500AH Smart Shunt, all was working well until i switched from the MACbook to the iPhone app i pressed disable bluetooth thought it was the computers bluetooth turns out it was the shunts bluetooth. Now its totally disabled and i cant turn it back on. I have the PUK as its on the label i removed the shunt from power let it sit for 5 mins and put it back in still no joy. So question is how does someone turn the Bluetooth back on i dont have the cable or and other victron device.

You need a VE.direct to USB cable now, there is no way to reactivate BT without it.

Wasn't there any warning before disabling it?

There was but i thought it was the macs warning not the device, thats what happens when you look at this stuff when tried. Just seen them on eBay for £30 is there another way ie buying that GX is it screen and if so does that come with a cable.?

You ca do it via a GX device (such as Cerbo GX), too, but that is much more expensive (unless you planned to buy one anyway).

In that case you need the same VE.Direct to USB cable or the much cheaper VE.Direct-VE.Direct cable.

The GX devices do not come with any of these cables.
