Since Accu-check and Disetronic are both owned by Roche, we can 
assume that they will tie the products together.   When I looked at 
the Accu-chek Compact web page it did say:

"Download your test results online with the Diabetes Assistant 
Program or into your computer with the ACCU-CHEK Compass Software. 
Or, you can "beam" the information, through infrared technology, into 
your personal digital assistant (PDA) with the ACCU-CHEK Pocket 
Compass Software."

The Advantage and Active both read the same way.   I didn't see any 
mention of RF capabilities.  Is that in their manual?   It seems 
quite incongruous for them to change their transmission technology.
