Minimed CGM: Experiences and Opinions Needed

Hey you guys. Normally, I’m the one sharing stories and opinions of things. But this time, I’m asking for your stories and opinions.

Next week, I’m going to get a chance to try the Minimed Guardian CGM. I have heard various opinions here and there from different people regarding their system, but I want some feedback about the pros and cons of their system, and if you have or have had a Dexcom system, tell me the differences and pros/cons over the Guardian. You can either leave a comment or if you blog, write a post and link to it in a comment.

Ease of insertion

Transmitter / Receiver communication
