    Hi
    Does anyone use nightscout with dexcom G6. I had set up nightscout years ago with G5 and spike app but never really used it and was wondering if G6 data can be easily shared directly to nightscout. From memory it was quite a task to set up.

    infact if you install the G6 app and use the same username and password and turn on sharing it may already work the same

    any issues goto the nightscout Facebook group
