Once the meter is connected to the computer you can sit back and relax, you don't have to worry about downloading any software or inserting a disk to use the Glucofacts program. As soon as you attach the meter the computer recognizes the meter and installs the program. It saved a lot of time and I was ready to upload my data in less than five minutes. When you first run the program it asks for a lot of basic information, this process does not take to long and the data you provide comes in very handy when you upload your data.
Once I had registered and uploaded my data I was presented with a very nice logbook. I honestly don't use a logbook, I should so I can see my numbers at certain times. Having the logbook on my computer will help a lot, whenever I connect my machine to my computer all of data goes right in to the logbook. The software also puts your blood sugar readings in to, a trend line graph, a pie graph, a standard day graph and a standard week graph. Having all of this information in all of these different formats is amazing. After uploading all of my data I'm very happy that I have changed test meters, the meters performance is great and all of the bells and whistles make the meter one of the best.
