Best feature is also the most frustrating
I’m using this with the 712 battery monitor. One of the best features of the app is being able to graph voltage against current over time (the “Trends” tab). The frustrating part is that as soon as you exit the app and come back, the history is gone, and it starts all over. At least let the app log the last 24 hours and continue logging in the background. This would make it a five star app and it would be tremendously useful in understanding what’s going on with our batteries, devices that use power, and chargers putting power back into the batteries.
Not tested on iPhone SE and iPad Air 2
The app was surely not tested on the iPhone SE there are so many places where icons are obscured and screens don't fit to the display while scrolling does not work. For example the history tab does not fit into the display. The status page also does not fit but at least I can scroll. However the touch point is only at the lower part of the screen. Usability wise the update is quite a step backwards. At least on my iPhone SE. In addition, since the latest firmware update my iPad Air 2 does not list my MPPT 75/15 charger. I can now only use my iPhone to connect to it, so be aware this may happen to you as well.
New app looks great but missing functionality
The new look is definitely easier to navigate and nicer to look at. I'm using with the SmartSolar 75/15. One drawback, I can't find daily power consumption in the history screen anymore. Is this feature no longer supported? If not, how can I revert to the older app? Consumption tracking is one of three primary reasons I bought this controller.
Use VRM for more extensive history
Those of you who need more extending historical data than that which is offered via this app need to install a Venus device (can be done cheaply by installing the free Venus os on a raspberry pi) and upload data to victron’s excellent (and free) VRM service. The data available is virtually unlimited.
Great work in keeping app updated
Thank you Victron for making VictronConnect available on MacOS as well. You are doing a great job making you products compatible with modern day devices and easy for users to update. One request. Please update the App to be compatible with the iPhone X (ten) display!
Needs new feature to be a 5
The app is really good. There needs to be the ability to "name" devices in the app. I have multiple solar chargers and monitors attached. It gets confusing. If you add this, I'll change rating to a 5 star.
Great App but Trends Graphs should be recorded
Love the app, but the trends chart should really be recorded. I’d like to be able to see the chart from the whole day but you can only see what’s happened while the app has been open.
BMV712 works great with my iPhone 6+. Very pleased with it. I would definitely recommend this product and would buy it again, if needed.
Unable to connect to MPPT device
App just sits and hangs at 20% progress. Have downloaded several times, can connect from other devices just fine just not my iPhone XS. My wife’s XS connects just fine too. Have no Bluetooth issues since I can connect over Bluetooth just fine with other devices.
Great app but needs to show 1/10 percent
Rock solid app, well designed and very useful. Please, please, please add 1/10 percent increments to “State Of charge” % to bring up to parity with the hardware battery monitor display.
I would love access to a little more historical data but overall great
Visual nightmare on iPhone
Should have never updated my app I always enjoyed going to the nicely laid-out white screen to see how my solar was doing, I'll probably never check it again. Certainly not ADA compliant with white text on all solid blue background. And forcing horizontal scrolling is an epic FAIL.
Nice update! Just need to update to take advantage of iPhone X screen :-(
712 power meter. No graphs. App not iPhone X compatible
Historical data is useless. No graphs on the power meters. Not iPhone X compat. Pretty poor.
A big reason I bought Victron
I'm setting up a system for my camper and wanted the option to be able to set the solar charge controller settings. Combining the V.E. Direct Bluetooth interface, this program, and VE's MPPT 75/15 controller gave me that option. I haven't finished the final system (I'm currently using my existing flooded acid battery) but this app is well designed and gives me access to many of the settings I want to control.
