The MiniMed™ Mobile app drains my battery

To minimize battery drain, always make sure the compatible mobile device and the pump are within 20 feet or 6 meters of each other without obstacles.

No SG value in the status area

If the sensor feature is turned off on your pump, the MiniMed™ Mobile app displays the current active insulin value where the SG value is usually displayed in the Status area.

The MiniMed™ Mobile app does not sync with my CareLink™ account

Issue Possible Solution
You have no Internet connection. Return to an area where you can connect your compatible mobile device to the Internet.
The CareLink™ server is down. Try again later.
The app is not running on the compatible mobile device. The MiniMed™ Mobile app is forced to close and cannot run in the background. The compatible mobile device settings must let the app run in the background for the app to continue to sync to CareLink™ and receive data from the pump. Since this setting cannot be managed in the app, refer to your compatible mobile device instructions to find out how to manage this setting.
The compatible mobile device is applying a battery saving feature to the app, and this is preventing the app from syncing with your CareLink™ account. Turn off the battery saving feature on your compatible mobile device for the app. Since this setting cannot be managed in the app, refer to your compatible mobile device instructions to find out how to manage this setting.
Sync to CareLink™ is disabled. From the Menu, tap Sync to CareLink™. Tap the toggle at the top of the screen so that the switch turns green. You have enabled the automatic Sync to CareLink™ feature. You can also perform a manual upload to your CareLink™ account by using the Upload Now feature.
The app is not receiving data from the pump. Check the app for any status messages or icons that tell you why communication between the pump and the app was lost.
There are no reports available in my CareLink™ account even though the app is synced with the CareLink™ account, and other data appears in the CareLink™ account. The Sync to CareLink™ feature has been enabled for less than 24 hours, either because the app has just been set up, or because the connection between the app and your CareLink™ account has not been functional for other reasons. The data history that CareLink™ needs to generate reports has not been uploaded to your CareLink™ account. Use the Upload Now feature to send data from the app to your CareLink™ account.
