[Equipment] Replacement Cellular Modem
#1
Replacement Cellular Modem
Does anyone out there in Never-Never Land have a bead on replacement cellular modems for ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV (or similar models) since the cellular companies have ditched everything 3G and below in favor for 5G? Thanx in advance.

RE: Replacement Cellular Modem
Just guessing here, but its probably built-in to a processor board somewhere in the unit, so unlikely to be upgradeable.

Just curious: why would you want to activate that? Once you are beyond your insurance compliance period, you don't really need it. Or were you planning to send the data to your Doctor?

RE: Replacement Cellular Modem
Current ResMed machines are using 4G modems, but it is very unlikely that they are a drop-in replacement for either a CDMA or 3G modem. In any event it would have to come from ResMed so that it would call back to ResMed.

RE: Replacement Cellular Modem
Yeah, it's an add-on board, under the left-side panel, that plugs into the main board.

I've searched everywhere, including multiple repair shops, but even though the repair shops can replace the modem with a newer model, they want the entire CPAP device to be sent to them and then they would perform the work. By the time that process is complete, I'm without a CPAP for a minimum of 3 weeks, and out about $600. May as well just purchase a new one. Many sources can replace the board, but will not sell the board to the users of the CPAP devices.

The need was not actually a need, but more of a convenience. It's nice to simply be able to view the basics via MyAir instead of having to...

- Open CPAP access panel
- Unplug SDCard
- Transport SDCard to computer
- Plug SDCard into computer
- Launch sleep tracking software
- View results
- Close sleep tracking software
- Unplug SDCard
- Transport SDCard to CPAP
- Plug SDCard into CPAP
- Close CPAP access panel

Yes, all that is really no big deal, but being able to simply click twice on my phone is super convenient.

Thanx again.

I just glance at the screen when I wake up. As long as I don't need to adjust anything, that's enough
