"I think the 640G will have limited functions compared to the Ping/Combo/Omnipod remotes. It will be able to bolus but won't have a bolus wizard, at least not at initial release."

"Cool, Thanks! Since you guys keep up with Accu-chek, what's the ETA on the Insight? It looks really nice but since it's still not in Europe it could be years before it gets by FDA. Maybe like the animas vibe, that is 3 years behind EU…"

Hi, My 8 year old daughter's been using the animas ping for 4 years and the warranty's expired, so were looking at alternatives, like the accu-chek combo system. We really like having the Ping meter/remote and had to go without it when she was in a clinical trial that used the Medtronic 530g with Enlite CGM.
