RE: [IP] Opinions on the Paradigm upgrade



Did you upgrade to the 512 or was that your original model?  What do you
mean that MiniMed is slow in getting the software out?  Do you mean the
internal software, or a PC program that will allow you to upload the
pump data?

I am new pumper so I can not give you a comparison but everyone at
Medtronic
Minimed have been great. I love the 512 . I think the only bad thing I
can
say is Minimed is very SLOW with getting their software out for this
thing.
VERY SLOW
