Pairs with a Victron Energy Cerbo GX
This product is a great way to add this type of data to your Victron Cerbo GX system. Check out this Victron Energy tech talk where they discuss this. Importantly, you’ll need to have Venus OS v2.80 or later running on your Cerbo GX. Also, the integrated Bluetooth connectivity on the Cerbo GX is not strong enough to support the Ruuvitag so they recommend that you add a third-party USB to Bluetooth adapter. Below is a list of these that have been tested by Victron Energy to work well. These are all in the $10 range.
