    Lots of people - @Knikki, @Mel dCP immediately spring to mind.
    Are you having problems with it?

    Thanks for the tag @Diakat

    Hello @Muneeb Libre 2 in the UK and where between June this year and 2020 seems to be what the rumours are other than don't know ~shrug~

    Hello @Carmelo BR yes I use a MiaoMiao there are a few of us that do, yes it will work with the currently available Libre here in the UK. You will need to get hold of a third party piece of software, xDrip or GLIMP on Android, where as on IoS it is Spike and obviously a combatable smart phone.

    Here is a link to the website that can give you info on it https://miaomiao.cool/

    If you really want one then I think either myself or Mel have a code to get some money off one :)

    Brilliant advice once again off @Knikki
    If you are having any issues with the MM @Carmelo BR post away....someone should be able to come up with an answer/

    @Muneeb I was recently at a pump meeting where there where a few reps from different companies attending. The Abbotts rep seems to think it will be early next year for the UK release??:confused::confused:

    That's a bit of a shame, would like updates on my phone but didn't want to get a miao miao and it be redundant in a couple of months.

    I believe the 3rd party developers ie Xdrip etc are very close to cracking the coding on the new sensors

    When ordering more Libre sensors I asked the guy when Libre 2 will be available and he said not till next year. Somewhere else I heard that it was only available in Germany and Norway at present.

    A few points here.
    1. The Libre2 encryption has been understood and cracked by the dev team for LimiTTer. The third parties have agreed licensing and need to update their products. Whether it will be possible to update hardware yourself is anyone's question. But...
    2. A patched version of the Librelink code on Android has been created that allows the data transmitted by Bluetooth to be passed through to other apps (like AndroidAPS or xDrip) so there is no need to use a third party transmitter. This is still in testing but seems to work well.
    On the Libre1 with MiaoMiao, a couple of warnings:
    1. When the Libre scanner reads values that are a long way from blood, xDrip/Spike values seem to be considerably worse than when the Libre scanner reads closer to blood levels.
    2. Error codes can be interpreted as very high values, so even with a well calibrated Libre on xDrip/Spike, make sure you test blood when they read high numbers (18+).
    3. Libres are known to be substantially less accurate when looking at number in the higher ranges, so if you are looking to correct a high glucose level, check with a fingerprick.
    4. Calibration is really important to do well.

    I ordered one last week, so will just wait for it to come. I used your code, so you should probably get something.
