[Equipment] DreamMapper dissatisfaction

RE: DreamMapper dissatisfaction
(02-28-2019, 08:15 PM)japers Wrote: I would expect any SD card to be a simple storage device which could be formatted to any simple file system spec that would fit within its capacity. The cheap little 2 GB SD card in my DreamStation is formatted to FAT32, a filesystem which applies no restrictions to access. Accordingly, if such a card can connect to a wifi router, it should just appear as a storage device. Accordingly, its contents could be copied directly to any other device on the same network.

If this is not so, could someone hit me with the clue-by-four so that I can understand why software (other than a file manager or terminal emulator native to the aforementioned networked device) would be needed for grabbing the data off of the networked SD card and used by SleepyHead / OSCAR on my computer.

A Toshiba FlashAir is an SD card with wireless network capabilities. After initially configuring the communication parameters, you insert it into your CPAP and download your sleep data over your wireless network. No more removing and putting it in your PC then returning it back to your CPAP.. In fact, I have mine automated so my PC downloads my data daily without having to touch anything.

RE: DreamMapper dissatisfaction
So, the wireless setup (ESSID and WPA password) have to be set up using specialized software? Or should I be able to use networking utilities from any ordinary POSIX system to configure the wifi device on the SD card? How did you do the initial configuration of the card for use with your PAP device?

RE: DreamMapper dissatisfaction
The early generations of the Toshiba only provided a web browser access to the data on the card they are not powerful to provide an smb file share. WebDAV is now availiable. Flashpap provides a java application to only copy new files from the Toshiba card and makes it a snip use


The wifi sd card is configured by a simple text file placed in a hidden directory on the SD card specifying network ssid etc...

I appreciate the information. Looks like one of these cards might be very useful to me.

RE: DreamMapper dissatisfaction
I've just installed the Toshiba Airflash card (the smallest, cheapest one, which is more than adequate), the FlashPAP application, and SleepyHead. It all works like a charm and gives me more data than I know what to do with.

The biggest gain that I see here is that now I can see apnea events minute by minute, not just aggregated for the whole night. And I'm no longer dependant on Phillips!

Thanks a ton to you folks who mentioned these things.

Glad it’s all worked out no chance of leaving your sd card out of the machine

RE: DreamMapper dissatisfaction
I just called the Phillips DreamMapper support line. 855-699-6276

The gentleman there stated that their current release of the DreamMapper software for Android phones has a display bug. You will get a successful link to Bluetooth, and the phone device will successfully download the data - but will not display it on the screen, nor forward it to the DreamMapper website app either.

He stated that they are aware of the bug and the engineering team is working on a solution - no fix date yet.

RE: DreamMapper dissatisfaction
Wow,

My Dream Mapper app on my Andriod device worked this morning. I got my readout! And it was posted to the DreamMapper site as well. Cool
