You are currently on a testing branch. Dev is the stable, master branch for omnipod. I know that confuses people. But, that’s the fact. Your currently on a less stable branch of the code. So, perhaps you can answer your own question, lol. I can’t because I only run off the stable branch.
If you have never updated Loop, I think its time…particularly because your running a branch that requires more frequent updates. Its been 2 or 3 months that you’ve been running. However, you may loose some functionality when you change branches. You should save a version of the JoJo Code somewhere on your computer so you can change back to it if you want. Move the JoJo code back to Downloads folder if you want to change back.
I’m using $25/mo unlimited data plan from Sprint. (You can get in any Sprint store or Best Buy). Even with that, my communications have failed a lot and is the most common point of failure in my system. Although, I just updated the code yesterday and have noticed that they have been working a lot on the BT comm. So has iPhone and Dexcom, so I expect some improvement after the update. I just started the firefly transmitter that @DrBB has been using (yesterday). That is believed to work better with the system after the updates.
I think that everything depends on how reliable the BT comm is in the JoJo branch. Thats something that I dont know. But, as I said previously, that is a testing branch. I expect that any significant improvements have been merged into JoJo, so if you trust that version and can update it, you should be fine. If you can’t update it and are stuck with an old branch of the code, then I would consider moving to the updated Dev branch.
I think its possible that BT comm on the Huwawei phone aren’t as good. I suspect that some of my BT comm problems come from using a knock off iphone. Communication protocols may not be as reliable or as secure in knock offs. Security is very likely to be poorer. That might be an issue for your employer - if they dont want foreign govs rooting around on their network.
Here’s a link to the improvements in the new updates. Are you using XDrip? That might be a complication. https://github.com/LoopKit/Loop/releases
