One day of use so far, and I've got to say the new PDM is a really nice upgrade from the original. Initial set-up only took a couple of minutes, basically just looking at my original PDM and transferring those settings to the new one. The color screen is much nicer to view, as I think everyone has expected. The button layout is a little different, but it only took a couple of moments to get used to the new flow. As has been mentioned previously, there is a light on the test port which you can turn on when you need it. Overall, size is about the same, but the feel of the unit in the hand is nicer, and a much improve visual interface. Haven't had the chance to do a data transfer, need some data in it first, but having a USB cable should be a vast improvement.
Insulet/OmniPod are a fantastic partner of Team Type 1. I'm sure everyone will have their new PDM's really soon, June 2??? Please let me know if you have any specific questions which I can try and answer for you about the new PDM.
