  • InterApp-Settings (Broadcast) Als je AndroidAPS gaat gebruiken dan moet je de glucosegegevens laten doorsturen van xDrip+ naar AndroidAPS. Daarvoor moet je “Local Broadcast” activeren in de Inter-App instellingen van xDrip+.

  • Om de doorgestuurde waarden in AAPS te laten overeenkomen met wat je in xDrip+ ziet, moet je Send the displayed glucose value (Stuur de weergegeven glucose waarde door) activeren.

  • Als je Accept treatments in xDrip+ en “Activeer locaal delen” in AndroidAPS hebt geactiveerd, dan zal xDrip+ insuline, koolhydraten en basaal informatie ontvangen van AndroidAPS en daarmee hypo’s etc. beter voorspellen.

  • Put transmitter into sensor

  • Wait 15 minutes before starting sensor so xDrip can initialize communication with the new transmitter

  • Start sensor (only if replacing)

    -> Near the bottom of the screen Warm Up x,x hours left must be displayed after a few minutes.

-> If your transmitter serial no. does not start with 8G and there is no time specification after a few minutes stop and restart the sensor.

  • Restart collector (system status - if not replacing sensor}

Transmitter battery status

  • Battery status can be controlled in system status (Hamburger menu top left on homescreen)
  • Swipe left once to see second screen. xDrip+ First Transmitter 4
  • The exact values when the transmitter “dies” due to empty battery are not known. The following information was posted online after the transmitter “died”: Transmitter days: 151 Voltage A: 297 Voltage B: 260 Resistance: 2391

Extend transmitter life

  • So far life cannot be extended for transmitters whos serial no. starts with 8G.

  • To prevent difficulties starting sensors it is highly recommended to extend transmitter life before day 100 of first usage.

  • Running sensor session will be stopped when extending transmitter life. So extend before sensor change or be aware that there will be a new 2 h warm-up phase.

  • Switch to the engineering mode:

    • tap on the character on the right of the xDrip+ start screen that represents a syringe
    • then tap on the microphone icon in the lower right corner
    • In the text box that opens type “enable engineering mode”
    • click “Done”
    • If Google Speak engine is enabled, you can also speak the voice command: “enable engineering mode”.
  • Go to the G5 debug settings and check OB1 collector.

  • Use the voice command: “hard reset transmitter”

  • The voice command will be executed with the next data receipt of the transmitter

  • Look at the system status (Hamburger menu -> system status) and see what happens

  • If you see a message “Phone Service State: Hard Reset maybe failed” on second system status screen just start the sensor and this message should go away.

    xDrip+ Hard Reset maybe failed

  • Transmitter days will be set to 0 after successful extension and start of sensor.

Replace transmitter

For G6 transmitters manufactured after fall/end of 2018 (i.e. serial no. starting with 80 or 81) please make sure to use at least the master dated 2019/05/18.

If your Dexcom G6 transmitter’s serial no. is starting with 8G... try nightly build 2019/07/28 or later.

  • Zet originele Dexcom ontvanger uit (indien je die gebruikt).

  • Stop sensor (only if replacing sensor)

    Controleer of de zender ook echt is gestopt:

    Op het tweede “G5/G6 Status” scherm, kijk naar Queue Items ongeveer halverwege het scherm - daar moet iets staan dat lijkt op (1) Stop Sensor

    Wacht tot deze melding verdwijnt - dit gebeurt meestal binnen een paar minuten.

    -> To remove transmitter without stopping sensor see this video https://youtu.be/AAhBVsc6NZo.

  • Forget device (in system status)

    xDrip+ Forget Device

  • Forget device in smartphone’s BT settings (Will be shown as Dexcom?? whereas ?? are the last two digits of the transmitter serial no.)

  • Remove transmitter (and sensor if replacing sensor)

  • Long press the red xDrip+ blood drop icon on the main screen to enable the Source Wizard Button.

  • Use the Source Wizard Button which ensures default settings including OB1 & Native Mode

    • This guides you through the initial set up.
    • You will need your transmitter serial number if this is the first time you’ve used it.
  • Put in serial number of new transmitter. Be careful not to confuse 0 (zero) and O (capital letter o).

  • Insert new sensor (only if replacing).

  • Put transmitter into sensor

  • Start sensor (only if replacing)

    It is recommended to wait approx. 15 minutes between stopping and starting the new sensor (until Sensor Status: Stopped is shown on second system status screen).

  • Restart collector (system status - if not replacing sensor}

  • Do not turn original Dexcom receiver (if used) back on before xDrip+ shows first readings.

  • Long press the red xDrip+ blood drop icon on the main screen to disable the Source Wizard Button.

New Sensor

  • Zet originele Dexcom ontvanger uit (indien je die gebruikt).

  • Stop sensor if necessary

    Controleer of de zender ook echt is gestopt:

    Op het tweede “G5/G6 Status” scherm, kijk naar Queue Items ongeveer halverwege het scherm - daar moet iets staan dat lijkt op (1) Stop Sensor

    Wacht tot deze melding verdwijnt - dit gebeurt meestal binnen een paar minuten.

    xDrip+ Stop Dexcom Sensor 1

  • Clean contacts (transmitter backside) with alcohol and let air-dry.

  • In case you use this function disable Restart Sensor and Preemptive restarts (Hamburger menu -> Settings -> G5/G6 Debug Settings). If you miss this step and have these functions enabled the new sensor will not start properly.

    xDrip+ Preemptive Restart

  • Start Sensor

    It is recommended to wait approx. 15 minutes between stopping and starting the new sensor (until Sensor Status: Stopped is shown on second system status screen).

  • Set time inserted

    • To use G6 Native mode you must wait for the 2 hour warm up (i.e insertion time is now).
    • If you are using the xDrip+ algorithm then you can set a time more than 2 hours ago to avoid warm up. Readings may be very erratic. Therefore this is not recommended.
  • Enter Sensor code (on the peel-off foil of the sensor)

    • Keep code for further reference (i.e. new start after transmitter had to be removed)
    • Code can also be found in xDrip+ logs: Click 3-dots-menu on xDrip+ homescreen and choose View Event Logs.
  • No calibration is needed if you use G6 in “native mode”. xDrip+ will show readings automatically after 2 hour warm-up.

  • Do not turn original Dexcom Receiver (if used) back on before xDrip+ shows first readings.

    xDrip+ Start Dexcom Sensor 1

Troubleshooting Dexcom G5/G6 and xDrip+

Problem connecting transmitter

  • Transmitter must be shown in your smartphone’s bluetooth settings.
  • Transmitter will be shown as Dexcom?? whereas ?? represent the last two digits of your transmitter serial no. (i.e. DexcomHY).
  • Open system status in xDrip+ (hamburger menue on top left side of home screen).
  • Check if your transmitter is shown on first status page (‘classic status page’).
  • If not: Delete device from your smartphone’s bluetooth settings and restart collector.
  • Wait about 5 min. until Dexcom transmitter reconnects automatically.

Problem when starting new sensor

  • Native sensor is marked as “FAILED: Sensor Failed Start”
  • Sensor stoppen
  • Restart your phone
  • Start sensor with code 0000 (four times zero)
  • Wait 15 minutes
  • Sensor stoppen
  • Start sensor with “real” code (printed on the adhesive protector)

Check in xDrip+ logs if xDrip+ starts counting “Duration: 1 minute” (and so on). Only in the xdrip+ logs you can detect at an early stage whether xdrip+ has stopped a sensor. Latest status is not always shown correctly on bottom of startscreen.
