    Our trainer told us that you can hit "start new sensor" without taking off the sensor once.

    Can you do it again? Do you have to remove it to do it?

    I think I heard you can do it until you have to recharge the transmitter.

    True. You can do it as many times as you want within the 7 day period.

    And - we were able to reboot the transmitter yesterday by just disconnecting it briefly (and not charging it). I had it disconnected for maybe a minute. I'm not sure why it didn't work last time. The only difference I can think of is that last time I waited for the transmitter to actually time out, but this time I did it pre-emptively.

    Ok, not really what you were asking...:eek:

    the transmitter needs to be recharged every 14 days, but after the 1st restart, on day 7, I think it needs to be taken off and put back on, you can choose to recharge it if you want.. we never got good numbers after day 7, so we just do one restart.. you can keep going as long as the sensor is working accurately.

    I believe there is a difference between the "new" and "old" transmitters in this regard. The new ones can just be unhooked and reattached, but the old ones must be placed on the charger to reset the 7 day clock. I don't know when the "new" ones started going out, but we got ours last September, and it is definitely of the "old" variety.

    I've restarted a sensor about 8 times. I was taking the transmitter off and recharging it every other time. If you just keep it on, it's only a 15 minute warm up, plus it irritated the site when I'd take it off.
