Anyone using guardian connect?

Is anyone on the Medtronic pump using guardian connect? What is the difference besides the iPhone compatibility with this and the guardian 2? How about interms of reliability ? I looked at the Medtronic site and I couldn't really work out the difference between the two.

My understanding, with helping someone who just started pumping a little over a week ago

When using the phone version, the pump can't see the CGM info, and vice versa

So if you have the Medtronic 640G and want it to suspend on low, you can't have the CGM data also sent to the phone

Gee that's a terrible design. Medtronic make some terrible design issues right across the board. Actually it seems inherent in pump companies generally.
