"You have an interesting point there. I think that the new algorithm is capable of adjusting over time as the system gets more calibrations from the blood tester. I think that artificial intelligence might be a lot farther than we know at this point.…"

"This is interesting. I too have gone from much worse accuracy right after updating to good accuracy (like I had before the update) in the last few weeks. For me, the difference was the sensors. I had 3 remaining sensors from a previous shipment when…"

"My daughter's Dexcom receiver went ferklempt a few weeks ago. I called the friendly Dexcom folks and they "accidentally" sent us an adult receiver with the 505 update installed. My daughter is one of the lucky ones: her Dexcom…"

"I posted this message on another section of the forum here, but I am posting it here again to reach more people that might not see it otherwise. I had the problems with the accuracy of the new 505 software, as others have mentioned here and in the…"

"Yep... I've had to start doing that more and more often. I don't know if my Contour NextLink is just becoming more inaccurate or what!"

"I have monitored all of these possibilities but except for when my sensors get to the very end when they go gaga and then totally kaput, this doesn't seem to be the case for me, this happens even in the first week after the sensor has had time…"

HPNpilot replied to aimeeh2oski's discussion 'Anybody using 505 software update yet? Is it that much more accurate?' in the group Dexcom Users
"When I get large errors from the Dexcom, it is usually one of two things (a) the first day of wear, which for me is a little flaky (especially the first few hours) or (b) the sensor is beyond 7 days and wearing out. In that case, I replace it…"

meee replied to aimeeh2oski's discussion 'Anybody using 505 software update yet? Is it that much more accurate?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I agree that is the accepted discrepancy and I understand it's reading off a different basis of course. But for me it doesn't matter if it is off 20 points or even 10 points sometimes although that is usually ok most of the time, and this…"

HPNpilot replied to aimeeh2oski's discussion 'Anybody using 505 software update yet? Is it that much more accurate?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Yep! Also, people forget that the test strips are only required to be +/- 20% of the true value 95% of the time (i.e. 5% of the time it can be even more off). So if your blood glucose is 100 as measured by a laboratory standard meter, your test…"

Clare replied to aimeeh2oski's discussion 'Anybody using 505 software update yet? Is it that much more accurate?' in the group Dexcom Users
"10-20 points away from 107 is still well within the standard for accuracy. Dexcom is for trends only. It is extremely rare that my Dexcom and my meter are absolutely the same, and that is most often after an 8 hour flatline or and uneventful night.…"

meee replied to aimeeh2oski's discussion 'Anybody using 505 software update yet? Is it that much more accurate?' in the group Dexcom Users
"My CDE updated mine for me 2 weeks ago. I think it's a bit more accurate but I still have tons of number 10-20 points off. And much worse 50 or more. I also have trouble whenever my glucose moves etc and with low recovery. It shows me going…"

Denise replied to aimeeh2oski's discussion 'Anybody using 505 software update yet? Is it that much more accurate?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I had the old software and got the new 505 software the day that it came out. It really is a lot more accurate and responds much more quickly to changing glucose levels than the old one did."

"Have you tried Flonase spray underneath the sensor ? Apparently this has worked for multiple people who were having Dexcom adhesive allergy. I believe Nasacourt is the same stuff as well."
