I didn’t see my specific questions answered in one place and I figured someone would know. My G5 arrives today, I plan on using xdrip+ with my phone to extend sensor/transmitter life. I’ve done some reading but still have a few things I’m not sure on.
- If I wanted to try the Dexcom app first, I can restart the sensor after 7 days correct?
- The transmitter is locked to ~90 days using Dexcom app. What happens exactly, is it sending a code to the transmitter? Or is it just the software on the phone or the official receiver that stops working with the transmitter after a set amount of days? Could someone just start up xdrip+ at any point in time to keep the transmitter going?
What I’m mainly unsure on is if I could try out the ‘official’ experience first then switch over to xdrip+ whenever I want to keep things going.
Thank you for your time
