Libre2 Direct

Libre2 (EU only) can connect directly to xDrip+ without a bridge. This page gives information on what a working system should look like.

See here to learn how to set it up...

What it should look like

When it has been set up correctly, and a new sensor is running, the xDrip status pages & logs should appear as is shown below.

Go to xDrip+ System Status and also BT device. If you don't know how, look here first.

Classic Status Page


Will vary with your xDrip+ version

Data Source

This should show as LimiTTer. Whilst mis-leading, this is normal behaviour.

Bluetooth Device

This is the unique serial ID for the sensor. It will start with ABBOTT...

Connection status

This should be "connected".

Sensor Start

The time the sensor is started.

BT Device Page

Swipe the screen towards the left to display the BT Device page.

Bluetooth Collector Status

Phone Service State

This should normally give the time that the last connection was made. Sometime it reads XXX Blu Con XXX, but this is a temporary phase, and will change to Last Connect HH:MM

Bluetooth Device

Bluetooth should always be connected.

Device Mac Address

This should be a string of six pairs of Hex numbers. Unique for each sensor

Bluetooth Pairing

This should stay "Disabled, tap to enable. Be careful to NOT tap this.
If you tap it by mistake, tap it again until it returns to disabled.

Slowest wake up

You can ignore this. xDrip+ doesn't spend its time waiting for readings: it will start expecting them at after a certain time (traditionally 5 minutes). If no data arrives at that time, you'll see "Woke up early" meaning xDrip+ was expecting data to be ready but there's none. Slowest wake up is the highest delay encountered before receiving data normally.

Next Wake up

Should say 5 minutes

Event Logs

From the vertical ... menu at the top right of the main screen, select View Events Log


you should see a row of comments of the format HH:MM Creating BG time = NNN raw = RRRR where HH::MM is the time, NNN is an internal time counter (a new reading has a number higher than the previous one), and RRRR is the raw value taken from the sensor, in 10th of mg/dl (1000 is 100 mg/dl or 5.5 mmol/l). This shows that the sensor is connected, and good readings are being taken. The reading should be every minute, although some might have skipped, as has happened here.

Losing Bluetooth Connection with Samsung Phone?

A number of people who have a Samsung phone have reported that they sometimes lose connection with the sensor. If this is the case with you, you can try changing some Bluetooth settings.Click on the QR code and then scan as directed.
