Yes, it disabled the gauge, but that was pretty much completely useless anyway. The app is fantastic. Not only can I see in near real time whatís happening with my solar, but I was also able to significantly improve charging performance by tweaking the settings to Battlebornís recommendations. This has turned out to be one of the best upgrades Iíve made to the rig. Adding this, along with the Victron SmartShunt, has allowed me to mange my power far more effectively. As was noted above, you could alternatively replace the MPPT and retain the gauge, but thatís a lot more expensive and I wouldnít ever use the gauge after seeing how much mire informative the app is.
