    Currently Medtronic only offers the 522/veo pump in Canada. The 640 series is available in other countries but not here yet. Does anyone have any inside info on when the next gen Medtronic pump will be made available in Canada?

    The short answer: no. The most anyone could come up with is a wild guess.

    Nobody knows when it will be released. Well, Medtronic might know (and that's a big maybe) but they tend to be really tight lipped about things like this. I assume it's because if they promised a certain release timeline and it didn't happen as planned, it would look bad for them. A lot of times things like release dates depend on factors out of their (Medtronic's) control. There are other reasons too, I'm sure. Maybe they like having a bit of mystery about it. :)

    Often there will be an upgrade policy, so if you really want the 640g but don't want to wait to start pumping, get the one they offer now and hope you can upgrade when the time comes.
