I am not sure what is the official way to enter a feature request but I would really like to ask for one. It has been asked at https://support.hammerhead.io/hc/en-us/community/posts/4414700476315-Side-Load-Blood-Glucose-apps- already but maybe it was overseen.
Garmin has the connect IQ SDK which is very nice, maybe too much for hammerhead to do, but I would really like to have the possibility to have a custom data field that can display data scraped from some URL or a different app.
The actual requirement for me and fellow diabetics would be to display the Blood glucose values on the unit like it can be done via the xdrip+/spike data field on garmin via connect IQ.
I managed to side load xdrip+ on the karoo so the values are already available on the karoo unit and could be extracted by connecting to an http url. No need for Hammerhead to get involved in FDA approval or some such as long as you just offer a possibility to extract data from a web url (of course, incorporating our own code would be even better, but probably too difficult to be worth the hassle).
Is there any chance? Not sure what other custom data fields would be interesting (runtime of bike lights maybe?) but the CGM data would be good for all diabetics and I also know from athletes that have no illness of this type who want to track their blood glucose with Dexcom sensors or similar hardware so they get warned before they get hypoglycaemia
