Well I took the plunge into the G6 when my last G5 sensor failed at 2:30am! For the life of me I could not get it started in xDrip+. How embarrassing.
So I hiked out the Dexcom receiver I had in the closet (never used, brand new) and updated it. I went to bed at 4am, with no readings.
First thing this morning I connected the transmitter to the receiver, waited the two hour warm-up, and started to get readings on the receiver.
Weird thing is, as soon as I started getting readings, xDrip+ connected and I’m back in business. Readings on my watch again!
So, when you’re stuck and can’t get your G6 connected, try starting the sensor with the receiver and watch the magic happen!
