Working well, thank you so much! The data appears as well in the Garmin Connect portal.

Very useful data field to see the values and the trend of the CGM data! Thank you for the great work! However, I have one question: - " Sometimes"the value diagram is also shown as graph in Garmin Connect (Nighscout Data) like for altitude etc. How can I influence this? Same behavior also with the bata version of this data field.

Hi, glad it's useful. The graph should always have data from this field as long as it was visible when the activity was done, and you saved and synced the activity to your phone. If it's still not working for you please use the store app page to contact me.

Thank you so much for developing this and releasing it to the public. Seeing CGM data on Garmin Edge devices is invaluable because you don't have to dig your pump out of your jersey pocket. I had some trouble getting it to work initially. At first, I thought the problem is with Garmin connect and tried the older versions that still allow local webservice broadcasting (4.19.1 and earlier) but I still got no data on my Edge 830. It suddenly started working when I entered 'xdrip' (without quotation marks) in xdrip settings - inter app settings - Identify receiver (only send to named package). Also in Garmin connect - device - app settings - data fields I entered 'xdrip' (with no quotation marks) in the 'offline (local uploader) URL'. IDK if this actually is what got it to work but at least it now works for me. If you are having trouble you might want to give this a shot!

Very useful for monitoring my glucose level during activities! Still have to carry my phone but glancing at my watch is much more convenient while running or on the bike! Thank you for making this available Horsetooth!
