I have a love/hate thing about software and apps. I want it to work and not be too complicated to install. I was always a hardware guy liking mechanical design and the construction and design of electronic devices. Coding and manipulating fiddly software programs is not my forte.
I had hoped to be able to use Spike and then latter Nightscout apps to display data from the G6 on my Garmin bicycle computer. I just gave up after looking at the instructions. So I went the modify the receiver route.
I found a self stick Garmin 1/4 turn mount. I cut a piece of my son’s Monster can. The receiver has a removable cover so I used some clear double stick tape to fix the metal to the back of the receiver. I cut the cover to fit the mount, and stuck the mount to the foil through the hole. I had an elastic lanyard that I secured with black lacing cord. I don’t trust these twist mounts without a lanyard to catch the device if it comes loose.
Anyway here’s some pictures that are clearer then my words.
Anyway if someone can guide me through Nightscout It would be nice to have one less thing on my bars.
