 Note that when listed as not compatible; they will also not become compatible later. The incompatibility is due to a hardware limitation in those devices. Note that when listed as not compatible; they will also not become compatible later.

 +Also note that connecting a VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle (ASS030536011) to an incompatible SmartSolar charger, will **enable** VE.Smart Networking support for the SmartSolar (Voltage and Temperature sense). In such scenario the internal Bluetooth interface of the SmartSolar should not be used anymore as communication errors may occur - instead the VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle is to be used when connecting by phone or tablet.

 Yes. In this instance it will simply act as a voltage- and temperature-measuring device. Note that the functionality is limited in that it does not (yet) show the graphs or other data which would normally be generated from these measurements. Yes.

-No. The CCGX/​Venus ​GX already has voltage sensing (soon they will have temperature sensing too). Adding Smart Battery Sense to the installation will confuse the voltage-sensing data. For further information please see: [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​ccgx:​start#​dvcc_-_distributed_voltage_and_current_control|CCGX/​Distributed Voltage and Current Control.]]+No. The GX device ​already has voltage sensing (soon they will have temperature sensing too).
