Veo pump is available in Canada; have mine since Feb 2011 ...Health Canada seems slow to approve the Enlite .I put a call in to MM , no response yet time an e-mail .I use the current sensor and as I have expressed before , I have had no difficulty inserting ...I think it is about the " angle " ...45 degrees ??

I meant "well OUT of warranty".

Much more user -friendly than that javelin inserter with the current Minimed sensors/CGM; which I have stopped using, BTW. I found it too inaccurate and too bothersome;and the insertion with the javelin/spear was not fun at all. I was told by a MM rep on the phone that the Enlite could on;ly be used with the Veo pump, which also is available in Europe but not approved in the U.S..What do you know about that, Manny? My 522 is well of warranty, and I am due for an upgrade. But I would much rather have the Veo/Enlite combo than upgrade to a Revel keeping the old MM sensors, which I am not fond of due to the aforementioned issues. I will hold on to this 522 as long as I can.. unless it takes over a year for the FDA approval of this newest MM combo.

God bless,
