I'm thinking about starting working on an androidaps loop but I have a Medtronic 640G. I live in France and I've been looking for a pump that could work but it is quite difficult to find one. So I think I could try with an omnipod but I never tried that pump. Is the omnipod a good option for a diy closed loop? 

Thanks you all for your help

Hey Ahlem,
If you want to use AndroidAPS, I recommend getting on an AndroidAPS discussion group. (This one is OpenAPS.)
You're decision depends on personal preference: you can loop with Omnipod, but you will not use AndroidAPS then, but Loop on iOS with a RileyLink. When choosing AndroidAPS, there's mainly two pumps supported in Europe: Roche's Combo and Sooil's DANA R(S). Both should be available in France, but from German discussions I heard that people decide most often for the DANA RS pump, as it is best supported by AndroidAPS.
The simple way to find help is to head to the French Looped Group on Facebook.
Good luck!

The Dana RS pump is now imported in France.
MEDLIFE is the new distributor in France.

Roche Combo and Roche Insight (drivers are directly implemented in AndroidAPS) are also available for free from your "prestataire".
You just need a medical prescription.
