On the web page for Xantrex under the contact button is a list of the Xantrex dealers. A call to my local dealer, Texas RV Supply, showed none were in stock but one could be ordered.

Xantrex Bluetooth Panel & XC Pro 3000 Review - Mike Mas

I ordered the Bluetooth enabled panel for my Xantrex Freedom X inverter from an online dealer in Arizona. Took about 4 weeks for them to get it in stock.... not surprised given the supply chain disruption from COVID-19.

I just got it today. Took less than 5 minutes to install and pair it with my phone to use their app.

It works great!!! Much easier now to change the Inverter settings, check the status, read voltages and get any error messages.

Cost about $80 but I think it was worth it for all of the convenience and not having to get on my knees on the steps to access the panel.

Chris,

Xantrex Bluetooth Panel & XC Pro 3000 Review - Mike Mas

One thing I just discovered that I donít like is it does not stay paired. Every time you want to use the app you have to put the panel into pairing mode and reconnect it to the app.

If you go into your Bluetooth settings on the phone, it wonít let you pair it like a normal Bluetooth device that stays stored in the phones memory.

Not a show stopper but inconvenient.

Thanks for the info on the pairing. I may put this lower on the priority list and see if they come out with a new and improved model. If I have to be by the panel whenever I want to use it and pair it first it kind of, IMHO, defeats the purpose of being bluetooth.

e

Agreed Dave...... I may shoot Xantrex support an e-mail over the weekend to see what they have to say about.

When I put it into the pairing mode, it doesn't show up in the phones Bluetooth but once you connect it within the app it does show up. But once you lose the connection, you have to pair it again.

I will play around with it a little more over the weekend and see if I can find a way for it to stay paired.

I got this a month or two ago. Emailed them and they never replied .

If I keep a tablet connected to it I can remotely access it. Wish it would always reconnect automatically though.

Thanks for confirming the problem. Not worth the time or money right now.

I have the same problem with this new Xantrex Remote with Bluetooth. Very unhappy that it wonít stay connected.

The Xantrex website page for Tech Support is broken does not work and you can't e-mail them for support unless your email has been trusted by their email server.

The only way to get to support is call their number. I plan to do that this week and complain a little. The only way things change and get fixed is if enough people rattle the cage.

Well..... I'm not on Facebook but I have a junk account for when Facebook is the only option for something. I posted on their Facebook site yesterday and already got an answer from their Tech Support:


Hello - In this particular version of the remote panel and app, the remote panel needs to be manually set to pairing mode every time the app is disconnected from it. This is the response from our software engineer. Having said that, this matter has been forwarded to the head of product development for further review. Thanks.


I posted back that this has been circulating now and many people who were going to buy than panel aren't until this is fixed. So if they want to sell this panel they better change the way it works so its like any Bluetooth device. I also posted that those of us who have bought it early should get a very low cost upgrade or even a free upgrade to a panel that works like any other Bluetooh device.

New bluetooth enabled See Level system lets you reconnect without repairing. Just installed that.

Glad it wasn't like this.

Found your comment on their Facebook and added my own. If anyone else has this, it wouldn't hurt to post there and show there is some demand.

Any progress from Xantrex

Anyone if Xantrex has made any progress on the Bluetooth issue?

I spoke to their technical staff and they are working on the new firmware. For the most part, its not really a problem since once you set the parameters there is no need to baby-sit the panel. If you like to make a change it just takes a second to pair the panel to your phone. I'll keep you posted!

Stay Safe - Mike

Yeah but it is a problem if you want to check the panel from bed when you're Boondocking for example

Not worth the money or effort if it is not true bluetooth and stays paired. Waste of resources until fixed.

Thanks for the replies - while I prefer to have the Bluetooth transmit all the time, its not really a problem until the upgrade come along. Once you get in the coach you pair it and it works until you get out of range.

Not exactly sure why anyone would be check the inverter from Bed!

Thanks Mike
