GPS needed for Victron Connect driving me nuts!

I have read different reasons (excuses) for the location to be activated on my mobile phone, and one of them is the change of android mobile. I have the same mobile for many years and the 'need' only occurred after an update from Victron, the mobile connection worked fine and then one day simply refused unless I accepted the update from Victron, and then it worked fine after the update was downloaded and of course the GPS was activated, after this my phone kept freezing as others have found, and as I also used my tablet to access the Victron unit, this too had the same 'update or you cannot use the remote access' message. And whilst my tablet did not freeze it DID require the GPS to be activated, to this end I not accept this a requirement on some Android devices if at all. As far as I am aware there had not been any warning, simply 'do this or it will not work' kind of attitude.

To add to my theory that this is not an Android 'need' mobile phones are used to track people anyway, but instead something that Victron themselves decided to add.

If I am wrong (having tried to access using three different mobiles and two different tablets), then allow me and others I have spoken to revert to the pre 'update' software version that the system used to have and worked perfectly without 'checking up' on customers whereabouts.

Further, I could think of other reasons to use location need, but that is not for me to say.

If I sound annoyed then yes, but see that as an understatement.

Location on VRM using a N2K connected GPS

Hi all,

I have a Cerbo GX connected to my NMEA2000 network. On the network also is a Furuno N2K GPS.

The N2K connection works; On the GX I can see the GPS as a device. I can also see the status of some tanks that are also on the N2K network, so I know the connection between the Cerbo and the N2K network is working. I can also see Victron data on the N2K side, so it works both ways.

However, I cannot see the location on the VRM Portal. When I select location is shows a location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean (and I know I am not there).

What am I doing wrong?

Download GPS data with timestamps (and speeds) via VRM API?

When downloading historical GPS data using the API, I get a KML file (not JSON like the rest) containing only the coordinates. No timestamps nor speeds. Is it possible to get the full GPS data somehow? If not, please consider this a feature request :)

GPS funktioniert plötzlich nicht mehr?

Guten Morgen

Ich habe vor 2 Wochen auf meinem Dach eine GPS Empfänger angebaut. Diesen per USB in den cerbo angeschlossen. Es hat alles funktioniert, im Untermenü wurde er mir direkt angezeigt. Nun seit gestern aktualisiert sich der Standort nicht, und unter dem Reiter GPS kann ich nur noch das location Format und die Geschwindigkeit einstellen. Alles andere über das Gerät ist weg.

Woran kann das liegen? Oder hat er nur 1 Woche gehalten und ist nun defekt.

Extract velocity from VRM gps track data?

I have extracted the .kml file from VRM and import that into Google Earth but I can't find a way to show velocity. Velocity is reported on VRM's Advanced page but it does not appear to be included in the .kml file. It looks like the file contains a string of latitude and longitude values for each sample.

Any ideas how to get velocity and where to display it?

Feature Request: Ability to turn NMEA 2000 GPS off

Just like the title says, would love to see the ability via a toggle switch in the GPS sub-menu to turn off/block the NMEA 2000 GPS PGNs.

I would like to turn the GPS off while still retaining the ability to output on the N2k network.

GPS Data via NMEA2000-VE.Can


I have a Cerbo GX and I'm not much of an expert.

I have connected a GPS antenna via USB.

The coordinates are also displayed.

I am now wondering:


Is it possible to provide the GPS data via the NMEA2000 bus (via VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable) for plotter, radio etc.?

If so, are there any instructions on what to do?


On the other hand, is it possible to provide the GPS data from another device via NMEA2000 to VE.Can on the Gerbo GX?

If so, are there any instructions on what to do?

Many thanks in advance for the help.

Hi there, I'm using Venus OS on a Raspberry Pi 3b+. I've connected a GPS receiver to it and can see my location and some weather data over the VRM portal. Is there a way (and if yes, how is it done?) to display this data also locally on the home screen of my touch screen?

Thanks in advance!

I only seem to be able to find my GPS information in Remote Console from VRM

I thought I read there was a widget I could add to the dashboard or devices like a temp probe can. Not finding it. If I RC into the Cerbo I can see the GPS statistics. From VRM is only the small map all that can be seen? -Bill
