VictronConnect for Android: now in the Google Play store

The VictronConnect app has been available for iOS for a while and as of today it is also available for Android. This app lets you monitor and configure BMV Battery Monitors and MPPT Solar Charger Controllers. Other products will be added in due course, such as those shown in the headline image above.

One of the great features with the new Android app are the ‘Configuration screens’. This functionality will be included for iOS at a later stage. More on configurable settings in a moment, but for now let’s get started with this cool new Android app.

Conclusion

Although I personally use the iOS version of the app, this Android one is a great addition to the ever expanding range of Victron Energy software products.

We welcome your feedback on this great new app, in the Disqus comments section below.
