RE: [IP] carelink usb what is it?



Hi Brittney,

 > I just got a wireless usb thing from
 > minimed in the mail. what is it?

Your old Paradigm Link meter had two functions: It was a BG meter,
and it contained a small radio transmitter/receiver. The latter
was used by the computer to read data from the pump (Carelink
software does that, for example).

The doohickey you just received, the Carelink USB, is just that
radio transmitter/receiver, without the crappy meter, and with no
need for a cable to connect it to the computer.

If you use Carelink, the next time you upload your pump, you will
be asked how, and besides the Paradigm Link meter and the COMlink,
there will be a third option, the Carelink USB. Select that,
follow the on-screen instructions, done.

Cheers,
Felix.
