This is really a PSA, but I just wanted to report that the USB port on my G4 Dexcom came loose and shoved all the way into the device as I was plugging it in. Now, the port is just jiggling around in the device itself. I did call Dexcom and they are sending me a new receiver on Monday, so they are covering it. I know there have been some other complaints about the casing breaking very easily, and I do hope that Dexcom will continue to stand by their products and hopefully, work on improving their quality control. As much as I hated the shape/size of the egg, I used it without incident for over a year.
Nice - especially since they dont include a rubber bumper like the last version .... whats the chances that you have a device with you 24x7 for a year and you DONT drop it once
Exactly. Especially when you are 6 yrs old like our daughter. The egg has been dropped tons of times and it is still fine. Well - fine if you don't want the better data.
That's exactly what I was thinking. My son's has vibrated itself off the nightstand more than once . . .
I don't know what the point of the sliding door is. I know the manual says to keep it closed when not charging the device but it's not like it makes it waterproof. I've never had a sliding door on any other micro usb port device like smart phones.
Good point. I wonder why they even have it?
I wondered about that, but I've never had that happen with my phone, so who knows?
That seems like a bad internal design. There's no reason for a micro usb port to not be air tight. With the 7+ I never had the lint problem because it came with a case that worked well for me. I would only unzip it to charge or download data. I mostly carry the G4 loose in my pocket.
Yeah - the 7+ receiver is horrible for getting stuff in it. We had a thread in there for awhile and now we have some weird piece of plastic or something hanging around in ours. So annoying. But that's what I was trying to say - there shouldn't be anything coming in through the connector on the new G4.
This totally explains how one of my cat's hairs got into the 7+. That was bugging me for months. I thought it was a crack until I noticed the tipping on the hair.
