I do not think you could do this as the blue tooth plugs into the monitor. You can do as Popou has done see pictures in earlier posts.

Also I did not want to cut hole and spent a long time searching and found the perfect location for mine and if you look hard I am sure there is a good location.

You would never know mine was not factory installed and looks very good, if I don't say so myself.

Can you order this unit with just the Bluetooth capability and not the display?
Take a look on the post #37. I take an aluminium 2x2 box and put it in the upper cabinet and secure it with Velcro

How did you route the cable thru and out the Trailer without having to cut a hole in her ?

The first hole: Is aside the water heater in transition over the storage external access compartmnet on curb side of the trailer. Not visible because it is located in the small area (less than 1.5 inche wide) between the bed frame and the closet)
The second one: At the upper corner of the same external storage compartment adjacent to the place where the electrical wiring is located under the bed. Not visible either. I put in this space the Victron's shunt.
The Victron's control cable was routed in the empty space between the trailer roof and the closet cabinet.

If you need pictures I can post themů

I really do love the app.

I can even check on the MPPT and batteries while on the road, and can see the amps change in real time as the road curves relative to the sun.. Nice to see everything topping off on long trips as you go to your next destination.
I ordered the Bluetooth Smart Dongle today. Is it easy to install? Do you use the iPhone to download the app?

Plug the dongle into the back of the 702. Easy. Download the app on your phone from AppStore then turn it on. Will automatically search for devices. Then select your device. It will probably ask you to update the firmware. Then you will be good to go.

Attached is the app but for my MPPT

Where did you find the 'CODE' for the VE Direct to finish the iphone app installation? I can't find the 'CODE' anywhere. It appears to be numbers only?
