I am currently using the Omnipod system and am looking into a CGM as well. I have done a lot of research, both online and with mailings from the various companies.
I have narrowed down my options to the DexCom Seven Plus and the Navigator. On another discussion, it was brought up that the Navigator has an excellent range (10 feet or more).
I have a few questions that I haven’t been able to find answers to online. The first is: if you are “out of range” for either the Seven Plus or the Navigator, do you lose all previously stored data? I realize when it is out of range, you wouldn’t have any blood sugar levels recorded. Considering that my Omnipod is almost always near me, either in my purse, on the table, etc…my only concern is going to the bathroom, getting the mail, etc…simple things.
My second question relates to the first…if you are “out of range” does an alarm sound? I would hate to think that every time I get up at work to go get something from the copier, get a drink, etc…that my CGM would alarm.
I love the freedom and discretion that my Omnipod provides me and want a CGM that is similar! For those that use an Omnipod, are the transmitters/sensors for the CGM similar in size to the Omnipod?
