I am traveling to Mexico in a few weeks, and I can not decide if I should bring Dexter along or if I need to leave him at home. It kind of sounds like a PIA to bring it. I will be in the water a lot and also plan to have some tropical beverages. I have been swimming with the Dex only once before and it failed the next day. I am also not thrilled to sport it with my swim suit.
But I am so comforted my this. I know that the heat, activity and alcohol will mean that I will have to be doing some tweaking to my insulin and carbs. It would be nice to see where I am trending... Also does anyone know how it does in flight?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated :0)
I would say try it out ive swam with it also but i noticed it wants to try to come off so maybe get some flexitape or something that will hold it down if it doesnt come out any no reason why it shouldnt work the following day
Hi KML -- I think to some degree you've answered your own question... right? :)
Dex travels well, though the TSA folks are not all accustomed to seeing them, so just be prepared to be patient with them.
Good luck in Mexico with your Dex!
how do you pop out the transmitter i basically have to break one of the clips to get it out?
You have to pull apart those two little arms just enough (too much and you know what happens). I've noted that it sort of wants to pop out when you spread them enough to allow for that. Just don't pull too hard.
I say take it in luggage and you have it if you need it. Enjoy the break for a few days without it and just test a lot.
Thank you all!
