    are you referring to the settings or when you Rover is in MPPT, float, boost mode?....either way, I have not seen that in the code, or haven't identified it yet....its good point and would be nice to have as another data stream.

    I asked the author about increasing the decimal places on the values and this is what he has to say: If you look at the class PowerDevice in solaredevice.py you can find the definitions of the various monitored values. You will mostly see that values are stored as "high resolution" (e.g...

    so, I got the broker working on my local Ubuntu computer and network (it had something to do with specifically giving permission to external devices by adding the IP address of the external device in the broker moquitto.conf file on the UBuntu computer)....I ran a basic mqtt publish and subcribe...

    Great! I got the Broker running on the Ubuntu machine by following these instructions: http://www.steves-internet-guide.com/mosquitto-broker/ Then, I installed two simple sub-pub scripts from here on the Pi Zero: https://www.emqx.com/en/blog/how-to-use-mqtt-in-python Using the above two...
