So my daughter decided to go swimming with her dexcom receiver still strapped around her waist. Does anybody know of any second hand receivers. I really don’t want to spend 400 on a new receiver.
Dexcom will send you a ONE TIME replacement for a huge discount.
They sell them for 499. The one time replacement is 399.
that’s not what they quoted me!! are we talking about a touchscreen or non-touchscreen? perhaps we are talking about 2 different receivers. If so, perhaps you can get the non-touch , unless they refuse to sell you that one.
I don’t know. What did they quote you? I live in Canada.
ah. there’s your problem. j/k. $200 US. If someone loses/breaks a second one, then they charge full-bore for another replacement(s).
Lol. Problem. I should mention that. 200 compared to 400. It’s not like it’s a dairy product. Why is it so much more here. Lol!!
Well, aren’t Lee Valley tools pretty pricey in the US? I’ve spent my share of dollars on their fine Veritas hand planes–my goodness they are expensive!!
If you’re okay with a non-touchscreen one, I’d be happy to mail you mine. I think I set it up when I first got it but haven’t used it since, thanks to the phone app. It’s just collecting dust.
I just saw that you live in Canada .
Well, if anyone needs a receiver that reads in mg/dL, the offer stands.
Please note that offers to buy, sell or swap prescribed items on this forum is not permitted.
I was only inquiring where buy. Not asking.
Check out Reddit diabetes groups or post there a message (since mmol/l is harder to find). I often see people there who are giving out or selling what they don’t need any more.
Sometimes they pop up on ebay. Thats a real bummer.
We’ve decided just to go with the iPhone. I have a backup 5s in case something goes wrong or my daughter decided to swim with it again.
As of today the exchange rate for $199 US dollars is equal to $264 Canadian dollars. So that is probably part of the issue. Bummer about that receiver though.
Bummer. I’ve done that accidentally with my pump.
We only use our receiver as a back up. Primarily we use our daughter’s iPhone. In fact the receiver has never even been out of the box. Our 8 year old had swim lessons last month and no issues with the G5 other than losing data while she was in the pool. A phone might be a cheaper option than a new receiver.
We are doing that now. I managed to get a second iPhone 5 from a friend as a backup. We are on vacation now in Florida and the G5 is working great. Doesn’t take long to reestablish the signal after a swim.
I don’t know where else to post this. I am among those who don’t like the new touchscreen receiver. Fortunately, I don’t have to look at it because I have the Tslim x2. Anyway, my CDE killed my last regular receiver by both stopping and shutting down the receiver.
But luck is with me. I found two older receivers. I have plugged them in and one seems to work. The other one charges, little green boxes going across screen, but I haven’t gotten it to do anything else. If there is some techie, who also dislikes the touch screen, who wants to try and make it work. I will send it to you.
