I need to update yesterday's post. There is one thing that I love about the Ping, especially compared to my Revel. The color screen is fabulous. So bright and cheerful (and easy to read). Too bad the meter remote is so clunky and comparatively hard to read. (My Animas rep mentioned this fall that he thinks that we will be seeing a Verio meter link to the Ping. That would be great IMO.)
I'm enjoying my Ping today. Still not super excited but actually quite happy I made the change. I do like my pink Pump along with my pink Dex Gen4. Looking forward to a pink Vibe....
Just in case you are interested, Animas says the EZ Manager is not supported for use with Windows 7. However, I can tell you from personal experience I have used it for over two years without any issues at all.
Thanks, Phil. They are sending me the disc along with the scanner dohickey and I'll try to install it when it arrives.
I remember when Medtronic was super slow in upgrading software and my understanding is that all the software changes have to be approved by the FDA. No wonder everything happens in slug-time.
Yeah... I'm using EZ Manager+ in a Windows 7 virtual machine on a Mac.
I'm not sure why, but the pump manufacturers think that we live in 2002, and Windows XP is the latest and greatest out there, and the Mac users haven't upgraded to those newfangled Intel Macs yet.
I have been on the Ping for almost a year from the 2020.I am kind of sorry that I did go with the ping.My insurance company wasn't covering the amount of strips that I was using.They limited me to 2400 a year.I had to go buy strips without insurance and I found One Touch test strips to be most costly.I also need the ping meter because the database is in there.They should have left it in the pump.I also thought that basal rates could be adjusted by the meter.I am now using my previous meter the Freestyle Lite because it uses less blood,03mmol and it has a port light for testing in the dark
