DreamMapper
#1
I installed this app as I have the Bluetooth technology in the CPAP Machine I have. It didn't show any data for the nights I've used the machine. When researching it referenced something about contacting the medical place or something. Is there another step to get this app working correctly?

Did you setup an account in DreamMapper? Be sure bluetooth is turned on on the CAPAP. You also need to pair DreamMapper on your device to your DreamStation.

Yes, I had already done all that and it said it was paired. Dont-know

My advice is to not waste you time on this. DreamMapper provides little more than what the machine itself show. Install SleepyHead and forget about DreamMapper. I have not looked at DreamMapper in weeks. Which reminds me, I should uninstall it. Wink

I would try rebooting the DreamStation by unplugging the power and plugging it back in. Be sure to take the water tank out so you don't a spill water into the machine if you move it. Reboot the device you installed DreamMapper on also. Try to download your data again after rebooting the CPAP. If it is actually downloading, DreamMapper should show download percentages as it downloads. The Bluetooth on the DreamStation can be erratic somtimes and take several attempts to get it to work. Overall, my experience with it has been good.

I use DreamMapper every morning to check AHI and leaks. I look at my data on SleepHead once a week unless DreamMapper shows something unusual. I still use EncorePro on occasion to verify something I'm seeing on SleepyHead (such as 0 AHI nights).

Now that I have my AHI fairly consistent and averaging about 1 I use DreamMapper in the same way. Without taking the SD card out I can check the AHI and breakdown of CA, OA and hypopneas which the DreamStation doesn't display.

As for Bluetooth connection problems you may want to turn off Bluetooth on the DreamStation and then turn it back on and go through the pairing process. When changing Cell phones I had to do this as simply choosing the clear pairing option on the DreamStation didn't work.

The bluetooth was way too unreliable for me. I had to restart one or other or both 9/10 days. Get an SD-air card for your DreamStation and then there is no need to remove it, no connection problems at all, and you get a full set of data in SleepyHead. For me, it made checking on my status both easier and more informative.

I've seen several posts saying the bluetooth on the DreamStation never works for them. I very seldom have issues with the it as long as I don't get to far away from it.

I use DreamCrapper every now and then. Sometimes I have to disconnect the iPhone bluetooth connection from the DreamStation, reconnect, and re-pair to get it to work.
