Victron BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor with built in bluetooth

Has anyone installed the Victron BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor with built in bluetooth on their Wonder?

I'm looking at purchasing & installing.  I have the optional 100 amp hr Lithium Batteries.
Any feedback would be appreciated.

Buy the smart shunt & forget the monitor. $70 cheaper and you will get easier and more info via Bluetooth on your phone.
No wires to run or deal with.  My monitor just sits in the basement!

How do you go about purchasing just the shunt?  Who sells the shunt?  Thanks for the information.  That was my plan anyway, actually just leave the monitor in the battery compartment & use the app on my iPhone.  Good advice.

Go to any Victron dealer, maybe even Amazon!

Does the App perform well?  Does it hold the history until you clear it or does it lose any information once the app is closed?
Any other comments would be appreciated.  By the way, I did find the shunt only on Amazon & ordered.  Again Thanks.

Another question, they talk about a cable that is necessary that does not come with the unit, what kind of cable & where do you purchase, Camping World??? What is description?

The shunt normally goes between your negative battery cable and ground lug, you would need an additional battery cable, of the correct size.
I attached my shunt directly to the negative battery post, then ran the existing cable to the negative ground lug.
I have not been looking at the history, suggest you ask Victron.
