G5 Algoritm and xDrip+

For you folks who are simply too tied to the Dexcom algorithm to try xDrip+, I’d like to let you know that xDrip+ includes the Dexcom transmitter algorithm for your Bg tracking pleasure.

The transmitter algorithm also enforces the 2 hr. initial warm-up , and you have to manually start the sensor after 7 days. It is unknown at this point whether the transmitter stops transmitting after 112 days use, but an automatic switchover to xDrip+ has been programmed.

It is in the latest beta and can be found under “G5 debug”.


I think there is an xDrip starter’s guide posted somewhere around here. If you know where it is, maybe you can post a link for people not familiar with xDrip.

I posted it, but as soon as I heard you were looking for, I deleted it :imp:

Seriously, changes have been coming so fast that as soon as I finished it was outdated. It’s also an incredibly difficult project. Besides my innate laziness.

So, no, there has been no starters guide published, here or elsewhere.

No, it wasn’t really for me. Just for anyone else that is interested in doing XDrip.

Dexcom is frequently way off the mark for me, and I don’t think xDrip makes it more accurate. So no real reason for me to use it.
