Hate to say, but work on omnipod drivers is still in progress, and Loop does not support Omnipod comm protocol just yet. Please be patient.
 Oh, I guess your question was just about setting up a new Mac? I do not even remember if there was anything special there to do other than going through a few generic setup questions. Enjoy the new Mac!
I bought my wife a Mac about 2 years ago when our last pc laptop broke… I know she loves it and we’ve had none of the problems we used to have with pc, but i never bothered to learn how to use it… they confuse me, and I really don’t need a computer at this point in my life
You can go ahead and install Xcode. Then you could download and install Loop on iPhone, but Loop would not work without a comm device (RileyLink) and a compatible pump. For omnipod, RileyLink firmware will be different, so I would not recommend getting one just yet.
The Loop doc is by far the best resource, very detailed, written by an expert T1D mom, should be relatively straightforward to follow. But, let me know if anything is unclear of any issues come up - it’s a live document, can be improved further.
medwow site but I assume you already looked. Equipment of course changes constantly.
If I was interested in loop, I would buy this one ASAP. Worth the chance. If it works - great. If not - minimal loss.
Year: 2008 (estimated)
Description: “Insulin pump, Medtronic Minimed Paradigm 715. Great condition. Works perfectly.”
The problem with doing all of this is that you have a limit on how long this will last. Once the new PDM comes out, they will be phasing out production on the old pods. At most you get 4 years before they are not available anymore. It’s a different thing than the medtronic loops where all you need to replace is infusion sets. The old pods will not be available indefinitely.
Then you will have to hope the new system is hacked, or you will have to use their algorithms.
Anyway, if you want to invest in it, that’s fine, but keep in mind it will have a limited lifespan.
