Wanting a new Pump

+1 like
I am currently on a MiniMed 530g with Enlite CGM. I am about a year away from the end of my warranty and am starting to look at all the different types of pump therapies out there. I have had MiniMed for 10 or so years and had an Animas pump before that. I have read that the new Animas Vibe and One Touch Ping "talk" to each other.  As in you can clear alerts and bolus from the meter which acts like a remote. Is this true?! If so, this would be a game changer for me. I love to wear dresses and hiding my pump where I can get to it without having to excuse myself would be AMAZING!

I know that the Animas pump currently works with the Dexacom G4 but have read that it should soon be connnecring with the updated G5. Has anyone else read or heard anything concerning this?

i am in the process of getting a pump and was thinking of Omnipod. Are the alarms annoying? I have read some posts about that. Can you silence them in certain situations?
