Hi jm, I never used the 7+ only started with the G4 in November but I have to say from what I have read on here, the G4 upgraded version is significantly more accurate than the 7+ and the range allowed between transmitter and receiver is 20' compared with I think 5 ?

Hi B--If I may chime in here. . I got late onset about 4 years ago and tested positive for the antibodies about a year and half ago. I did MDI with basal insulin for a while and had heard about the pump, but was unsure about having a tethered device on me 24/7, including during sleep. I have the animas ping and have been on it about 6 months now. I LOVE IT! During meals, I don't have to fidget with a pen and pull up my shirt to inject and mess around with needles. . I chose the Ping because I swim and it's waterproof--the only thing is that I don't really like wearing the pump when I work out (swim and run), so now I wish I had the Tandem (not waterproof) since it's smaller and less bulky in the pocket. The pump also is convenient to figure out how much insulin you need to bolus and BG correct--it does the calculations for you!! So all in all, I'm glad I switched and don't think I'll ever go back to MDI.

Thank you. I haven't had diabetes long... 5 years (I'm 35 now). Mostly likely MODY (neg for antibodies but 0 cpeptide) but I've never had genetic testing. I've been insulin dependent the whole time. Wanted a pump for a while but it's never been financially feasible before now. The terminology and options are still new to me. It's good to hear that you haven't regretted the decision to switch to pumping!
