This would still be reason to stay with dexcom for me, but I think future versions will eliminate need for scan.

They don’t talk about calibration either and I know my endo is still skeptical how accurate it will be, She is a tried and true Dexcom person.

But importantly the Libre has been a lot more affordable for people that don’t have insurance to cover a Dexcom and now they will have alerts. I am looking forward to that on my dog. I have Miao Miao on her Libre right now so I can have alerts.
