Chas replied to Soulhouse's discussion 'I can't see my G4 in the sun!' in the group Dexcom Users
"I am not seeing any issues reading the displays, yes I do need to shade a bit in bright sunlight but its still readable for me. It could be possible that the bright sunlight impact is also made worse by partial colour blindness ?, just a thought."

"I'm not sure anyone suggested this yet, but for me I have a lot of problems seeing my bg number in the sun (especially when it's low, the number is red which is almost unreadable for me in any light). Anyway, what I do is: Goto menu by…"

"No problem. That is frustrating about the red text - perhaps changing the color would help, or making the number more prominently large on the screen when low. I think I'd like a little more easy glance-ability in the low ranges anyway."

"Terry, I don't have as much problem with the Ping because most of the information uses white text and numbers. Of course I'm checking my Dex frequently and my pump less often."

Laddie replied to Soulhouse's discussion 'I can't see my G4 in the sun!' in the group Dexcom Users
"The major issue is that I can see the white very easily and the yellow somewhat less easily. It's the red that I cannot see at all, so the solution just might be to not have the numbers in red."

"Hi Laddie - I have experienced the same problems, but unfortunately it is a matter of how expensive the technology is to have an easily-readable screen in direct (or indirect) sunlight. Cell phone manufacturers put a lot of money into research and…"

Terry replied to Soulhouse's discussion 'I can't see my G4 in the sun!' in the group Dexcom Users
"Yes, I deal with this everyday. I like to walk 2-4 miles every day. I monitor my BGs on the Dex as I walk. It is a poor screen in bright light. I need to be able to shade it just so. I have this same problem with my Ping pump."

"This post is a few months old, but I think it's a very important problem with the Gen4. I was hiking today and couldn't for the life of me read the BG number. There wasn't a lot of available shade, but with my hand shielding it and a…"

"I have the same problem with the Animas Ping pump screen. I find wearing polarized sunglasses makes it worse. I hope that better screens will be possible in the near future. My iPhone is easily visible in the sun! That being said, this technology…"

I can't see my G4 in the sun!

First of all, I love my DexCom. It has changed my life, especially while cycling. I have been an athlete most of my life and the Dexcom has prevented me from getting low. I was disappointed that the G4 is so difficult to see in the sun. I can barely read the number and cannot tell which direction the arrows are going without stopping and trying to find some shade(not always convenient when your racing). It seems the more high tech they make the screens on pumps and CGM, the harder it is to read…See More

December 14, 2012 from 1pm to 2pm
1-2pm PST3-4pm CDT4-5pm EST9-10pm GMT For lots of us with diabetes the holidays can be an emotionally mixed bag.  Celebrations are joyful, but usually involve foods that challenge our blood sugar control, our will power, and our health in general.  And while it can seem like everyone else in the world is happy and carefree, we have a myriad of potential sources of stress and frustration related to diabetes.  Join Dr. Korey Hood to discuss the coping and psychology of having diabetes and the…See More
