I’m an embedded software engineer, and have been curious about the technology in a friend’s Dexcom G5 equipment. She recently swapped out the transmitter and I was surprised to hear that the old transmitter just goes in the trash, given how expensive they are! She gave one to me instead to bust open and explore, but Google searches brought me here first.
After reading about people using xDrip to use the G5 transmitter beyond it’s software-enforced limits, and others replacing the batteries, I’m wondering if there’s a market for used G5 transmitters. How could someone who isn’t interested (or able) to going outside of the Dexcom ecosystem (i.e., use xDrip), connect with the community to potentially sell or at least donate what is currently trash?
