BME280 on T-Echo

Does having a BME280 on a T-Echo display the temperature, humidity, and pressure on the screen, reported from the device itself?

Also, do my device’s temperature, humidity, and pressure readings show up on another T-Echo’s screen in the same mesh?

I have T-Echo’s without the BME280 modules and I cannot find any info about the sensor readings on the T-Echo display.

I don’t have a T-Echo with BME280, hence why I am asking around here before buying one.

It has to be enabled. Telemetry Module Configuration | Meshtastic

No, not on their device’s screen, it’s visible within the clients for other members of the Mesh.

The telemetry module isn’t specific to any devices. It’s the same for all devices, so the info we have in the docs represents all, including the t-echo.

Yes! I got two T-Echo units WITH the BME280 and you can actually see temp, humidity and baro pressure on the Meshtastic Android app! To make sure you have the latest readings, you can tap on the node ID name icon thing on the far left and you can do “Direct Message”, “Request Position”, “Traceroute”, " etc, and select request position or Traceroute and it should update the app with the latest readings.

So I would go for it with the BME 280.

Is there any downside to enabling enviro in telemetry and GPS in a standard config file to be imported on all new devices? As in, what happens if both these switches are enabled on a Heltec that doesn’t have the sensors?
