Bluetooth support for Raspberry Pi 3

Hi there, I'm running ~v2.6 Venus OS on my Raspberry Pi 3b with wired USB connections. If I upgrade to 2.70+ will I be able to connect via the onboard bluetooth to Victron devices without the need for wired connections? Also, which file can be used to flash an SD http://updates.victronenergy.com/feeds/venus/release/images/raspberrypi2/?C=M;O=D? Thanks very much!

Hello,

You will not be able to connect to the Victron devices via Bluetooth. At the moment this is not supported on any type Venus device. Bluetooth can be used to connect to the Venus device from a smartphone/tablet and configure the networking.

Kind regards,
