-‘Has DC system’ is a feature on a GX device. When that config switch is enabled, a new box called 'DC Power' appears on the GX display. Its value is calculated from the differential between the power measured by the bms or battery monitor, and the power flow measured by the inverter/​charger and other sources that are actively monitored by the GX. Its typicla ​use are Marine and Automotive applications,​ as they have alternators,​ and lights, fridges, and many more DC loads. For more details, see the ccgx manual.+‘Has DC system’ is a feature on a GX device. When that config switch is enabled, a new box called 'DC Power' appears on the GX display.

When one or more non-Victron solar chargers are used, the system cannot read their Energy yields, and because of that the resulting overviews are incorrect and unreliable.   * These overviews work correctly when Victron Solar Chargers are used.

 +===== How can I move an installation'​s history from one GX device to another? =====
 +
 +You will need to connect the new GX device to the internet, and register it. Take note of the VRM Portal id.
 +
 +Then open the old site on VRM, and go to **Settings** -> **General**.
 +
 +There is an option there **Replace the GX device of this installation**.
 +
 +This will explain the steps of the procedure.
