Thank you Keef and Capin101, I'll try your recommendations. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong...ya' know? :) Thanks Again!

Gary, weak signal often means that the transmitter is not sending a strong enough signal, there is an obstruction between pump and transmitter, or there is interferance. I would recommend you charge your transmitter for up to 8 hours next time and see if that helps. You may also want to call Minimed and let them know. The transmitter may be faulty. I believe they have a warranty of 6 months.

I started MM CGM two weeks ago and have had frequent weak signal messages. I usually insert the sensor in my thigh and wear my 723 pump on my belt, prefer my left side. If the sensor is on my right thigh, I get a weak signal all the time? Is this normal?

@ Mar - when I travel by air, I just hide the pump in the bra and make sure I have a site on that is covered by clothing. I am of the don't ask, don't tell when it comes to TSA, especially because we don't have full body scanners at out local airport. My pump never beeps, and I am free to go, even with all of the supplies in my carry on. The one time after I staretd pumping I declared the pump to the TSA agent prior to going through, I was called out for a full pat down, even though the pump didn't set off the metal detector.

I have a sensor as well as a pump, and I always tell them in advance, as well as showing them my bag of supplies. I never take off the pump. I've never had any problems, but that's not to say there aren't psychos working for the TSA.

My Pump is the Revel 723, and I use a Medtronic Minimed Transmitter, the MMT 7703NA CGM. They connect to each other with relative ease but I sometime lose signal during the night if I fall asleep on the sensor and the pump cant find the signal.

Dex is not the one usually used with MM as you would need a separate device. I have minilink, part which is part of the MM integrated system.
