Get bloodsugar level on Karoo screen

Post by bobf »

I am diabetic type 1, have my sensor connected to an APP on my Phone which also uploads the data to the cloud.

On Garmin Connect IQ there are some datafields which are being filled over the Bluetooth connection directly from the APP on the phone (Spike-app) of from the cloud service Nightscout.

There is also a Nightscout APP for Android which off course reads the data from the web directly.

When sideloading such an APP on Karoo, wil jou be able to present the data combined with the cycling data or navigation map?

I really like the idea of the Karoo but with the Garmin Edge 830 this is already working, so should I consider getting a Karoo or will this not work out?

I wanted to bump this post and see if anyone had any insight into this yet.

Given the sim slot and capabilities I envision this to be an optimal device to be able to use run CGM without the need of a phone.
