It can be that you are close enough to see the product but not close enough to connect to it. If you are using a Smart model with built in Bluetooth, and you are unable to move it, or get closer to it with your phone, it may be possible to increase the Bluetooth range by using an additional VE.Direct to Bluetooth dongle accessory and placing that closer to you.

   - Bluetooth bonding information may be outdated. This happens when the PIN code has been changed in the product, or if your Victron product has been connected to too many phones. The product will only remember the last 10 phones connected to it. To solve this, remove the pairing completely from your phone system menu. Then open VictronConnect and re-pair the product and your phone. Watch these instructional videos to learn how to remove the pairing on {{victronconnect:video_unpair_android_cropped.mp4?linkOnly | Android}} or {{victronconnect:video_unpair_ios.mp4?linkOnly | iOS}}.   - Bluetooth bonding information may be outdated.

 +On Android it is also possible that other apps prevent the PIN code pop-up from showing, even when pairing in the Android Bluetooth settings menu. One such an app is "FrSky Free Link", which even blocks pairing with Bluetooth headsets. In this case, the thing to do is remove the problematic app. This can be done by uninstalling apps one by one (starting with apps that use or connect to Bluetooth devices), removing all apps or even resetting the phone to factory defaults. When the Victron products are paired to the phone/tablet, the problematic app can be re-installed.
