    If you are about to upgrade your libre reader or app do it while you are changing the sensor as the reader or app will not read the old sensor. No warning is given on the app update!!!

    Why didn't you tell me that before I did it!
    Actually, whilst LibreLink told me to start a new sensor, when I clicked "Next", it was able to read my existing one. So I think it should be ok to upgrade LibreLink mid-sensor ... but don't blame me if it isn't.

    Glimp carried on regardless.

    Xdrip stopped working last night just after I upgraded the app. So phoned abbot to complain and they are sending a new sensor out. Just updated my reader while I am changing the sensor

    Oddly enough. Mine auto updated in the early hours before ì noticed an email about the update from Abbot?

    But I'm between sensors right now.

    No prob with the app (I updated it through the play store an hour ago, works fine and no lost data) but the mail I received from Abbott said to not update the reader until changing sensors.

    I am referring to the reader update, not the mobile app.....

    I ask as mine seems to be already updated, if the latest is in fact 2.4.8......I did receive it in April so it may have already came with the latest software already...

    Updated the app on Google Play yesterday with no problems, I've updated the reader too this afternoon and yes it wont allow me to scan with 6 days to go but that's fine as I only start sensors with my reader and use the app the rest of the time xx

    Hi,

    Yep that's the Adroid version I have updated to.. Better accuracy & bug fixes. Apparently.
    I tend to start the sensor with the Librelink, then use Glimp.

    I don't use the reader or even posess one. Unfortunatly, I can't help you with that side of things @novorapidboi26 .

    I'd only use the App only too if it told you how much insulin you've got left working and for how long like the reader does.

    Meanwhile yesterday some idiot whose sensor was about to run out thought 'oh perfect timing, I'll update the reader tonight as I have to start a new sensor anyways', and then completely forgot and started the new sensor with the reader and remembered 10 mins later that I was supposed to be updating it (once I'd worked out how) .. oh well, I'll have to try and remember in about 2 weeks again :)

    I haven't seen that on the reader. I knew that it would do it for BG tests, but not scans. Is that part of this software update?

    You need to put it into “professional” mode, the code is CAA1C - have a look in the settings.

    Yeah I know. It just says it'll show for BG on mine.
