Configuración de xDrip+

If not already set up, then download xDrip+.

Desactiva la optimización de la batería y permite la actividad en segundo plano para la aplicación xDrip+.

You can safely download the latest APK (stable) unless you need recent features or are using sensors that are being actively integrated (like G7), in which case you should use the latest Nightly Snapshot.

Disable Nightscout upload

Starting with AAPS 3.2, you shouldn’t let any other app upload data (blood glucose and treatments) to Nightscout.

→ Hamburger Menu (1) → Settings (2) → Cloud Upload (3) -> Nightscout Sync (REST-API)(4) → Switch OFF Enabled (5)

xDrip+ Ajustes Básicos 1

Disable automatic calibration and treatments

If you use an older version of AAPS (before 3.2), make sure to deactivate Automatic Calibration (7) If the checkbox for Automatic Calibration is checked, activate Download treatments (6) once, then remove the checkbox for Automatic Calibration and deactivate Download treatments again.

xDrip+ Ajustes Básicos 2

Tap Extra Options(8)

Deactivate Upload treatments(9) and make sure you will NOT use Back-fill data (11).

Option Alert on failures should also be deactivated (10). Otherwise you will get an alarm every 5 minutes in case Wi-Fi/mobile network issues or if the server is not available.

Inter-app Settings (Broadcast)

If you are going to use AAPS and the data should be forwarded to i.e. AAPS you have to activate broadcasting in xDrip+ in Inter-App settings.

→ Hamburger Menu (1) → Settings (2) → Inter-app settings (3) → Broadcast locally ON (4)

In order for the values to be identical in AAPS with respect to xDrip+, you should activate Send the displayed glucose value (5).

Enable Compatible Broadcast (6).

xDrip+ Basic Settings 4

If you have also activated Accept treatments in xDrip+ and Enable broadcasts to xDrip+ in AAPS xDrip+ plugin, then xDrip+ will receive insulin, carbs and basal rate information from AAPS.

If you enable Accept Calibrations, xDrip+ will use the calibrations from AAPS. Be careful when you use this feature with Dexcom sensors: read this first.

Remember to disable Import Sounds to avoid xDrip+ making a ringtone every time AAPS sends a basal/profile change.

xDrip+ Basic Settings 5

Identificar receptor

  • If you discover problems with local broadcast (AAPS not receiving BG values from xDrip+) go to → Hamburger Menu (1) Settings (2) → Inter-app settings (3) → Identify receiver (7) and enter info.nightscout.androidaps for AAPS build (if you are using PumpControl build, please enter info.nightscout.aapspumpcontrol instead!!).

  • Importante: la corrección automática a veces tiende a cambiar la «i» de «info» por una mayúscula. You must use only lowercase letters when typing info.nightscout.androidaps (or info.nightscout.aapspumpcontrol for PumpControl). Capital I would prevent the App from receiving BG values from xDrip+.

Use AAPS to calibrate in xDrip+

  • If you want to be able to use AAPS to calibrate then in xDrip+ go to Settings → Interapp Compatibility → Accept Calibrations and select ON.

  • You may also want to review the options in Settings → Less Common Settings → Advanced Calibration Settings.

Dexcom G6

  • El transmisor Dexcom G6 puede conectarse simultáneamente al receptor Dexcom (o alternativamente a la bomba t:slim) y a una aplicación en tu teléfono.

  • Para usar xDrip+ como receptor, desinstala primero la aplicación Dexcom. No se puede conectar al mismo tiempo la aplicación xDrip+ y Dexcom con el transmisor.

  • If you need Clarity and want to profit from xDrip+ features, use the Build Your Own Dexcom App with local broadcast to xDrip+, or use xDrip+ as a Companion app receiving notifications from the official Dexcom app.

La versión de xDrip+ a utilizar depende del número de serie de los transmisores G6.

  • All G6 transmitters manufactured after fall/end 2018 are called «Firefly». They do not allow sensor restart without removing the transmitter, they do not send raw data. It is recommended to use the latest Nightly Snapshot.

  • Old rebatteried transmitters and modified trasmitters allow sensor life extension and restarts, they also send raw data. You can use the latest APK (stable).

Ajustes específicos de Dexcom

No se recomiendan reinicios preventivos

Only rebatteried or modified Dexcom transmitters. Preemptive restarts do not work with standard transmitters and will stop the sensor completely: you need to remove the transmitter to restart the sensor.

The automatic extension of Dexcom sensors (preemptive restarts) is not recommended as this might lead to “jumps” in BG values on day 9 after restart.

xDrip+ Jump after Preemptive Restart

To use it safely, there are a few points to be aware of:

  • Si estás usando los datos nativos con el código de calibración en xDrip+ o Spike, la cosa más segura es no permitir reinicios preventivos del sensor.

  • Si debe usar reinicio preventivo, a continuación, asegúrese de insertar una hora del día donde puede observar el cambio y calibrar si es necesario.

  • Si está reiniciando sensores, o bien haga esto sin la calibración de fábrica para obtener resultados más seguros en los días 11 y 12, o asegúrate de que estás listo para calibrar y vigilar la variación.

  • La preabsorción del G6 con calibración de fábrica es probable que dé variaciones en los resultados. Si haces preconfiguración, entonces para obtener los mejores resultados, probablemente necesitarás calibrar el sensor.

  • Si no estás observando los cambios que pueden estar teniendo lugar, puede ser mejor volver al modo no calibrado en fábrica y usar el sistema como un G5.

Conectar el transmisor G6 por primera vez

For second and following transmitters see Extend transmitter life below.

Follow these instructions.

Estado de la batería de Transmisor

  • Battery status can be controlled in system status
    → Hamburger Menu (1) → System Status (2) → If you are on the Classic Status Page (3) swipe the screen (4) to reach → G5/G6/G7 Status screen.

xDrip+ System status

  • See here for more information.

Extender vida del transmisor

  • Lifetime cannot be extended for Firefly transmitters: only rebatteried or modified transmitters.

  • Follow these instructions for non-Firefly transmitters.

Sustituir transmisor

  • Desactive el receptor Dexcom original (si se utiliza).

  • Stop sensor (only if replacing sensor).

  • Forget device in xDrip+ system status AND in smartphone’s BT settings (Will be shown as Dexcom?? mientras ?? are the last two digits of the transmitter serial no.)
    → Hamburger Menu (1) → System Status (2) → If you are on the Classic Status Page (3) swipe the screen (4) to reach → G5/G6/G7 Status screen → Forget Device (5).

xDrip+ System status

  • Remove transmitter (and sensor if replacing sensor). To remove transmitter without removing sensor see this, or this video

  • Coloque el transmisor antiguo lejos para evitar la reconexión. A microwave is a perfect Faraday shield for this - but unplug power cord to be 100% sure no one is turning the microwave on.

  • Follow these instructions.

  • No encienda el receptor original de Dexcom (si lo utiliza) de nuevo antes de xDrip+ muestre las primeras lecturas.
