Yesterday i started using a Dexcom G6 CGM on my right arm.
I still have my Libre/MiaoMiao on my left arm!
The reason i bought the Dexcom G6 Starter Kit is because just over a week ago i was given a Tandem t:slim X2 pump and i want to use Basal IQ to stop my numerous Hypos.
I spent a lot of hours yesterday trying to start the G6 using xDrip+.
I have used xDrip+ with my Libre/MiaoMiao for a few years and i really like it.
Unfortunately i could not make xDrip+ work with the G6.
So, i installed the Dexcom G6 App on my phone ( Huawei P20 running Android 9 ) and managed to get that working. After getting the Dexcom app to work, i was able to setup the G6 with my pump.
I was also able to start the Basal IQ feature which now works wonderfully.
However, i just don’t like the Dexcom G6 App. It is nowhere near as good as xDrip+.
Can anyone help me get the G6 running on xDrip.
I have turned on the Source Wizrd and selected the G6.
At the moment it says “G6 State isn’t currently known. Next connection will update this.”
But clearly nothing is happening.
I have uninstalled the G6 app completely and restarted my phone.
In Bluetooth it says that the G6 sensor is paired.
