Hi everyone! The bulk of the switches are out, if you haven't received your's yet then it is on its way and should arrive soon. I appreciate your patience and support, I'm working a full-time job with a 4 hour travel three of the days, so needless to say it has been a struggle but everyone's support has been wonderful!

Update #6

Hello again everyone! Sorry for the delay, the setup instructions are now available at www.mausberrycircuits.com under the "car setup" link at the top of the page. The switches are steadily shipping, I've been very busy with my day job but hoping to have all the switches out soon. There is no option to automatically place tracking information into the backer's surveys as the postage is printed.

Update #4

Hi everyone, just keeping you updated - all the parts have arrived EXCEPT the PCBs which are scheduled to arrive this afternoon. I paid extra to have the PCBs immersion gold plated and blue soldermasked which apparently added 5days to the printing process (this was unknown to me until I inquired about the status of the boards). Based on the tracking information they are on the truck for delivery today though. As soon as they arrive I can begin reflowing the SMD components and getting these out to everyone :) Thanks again to all the wonderful backers!

Update #3

Hello everyone! The PCBs are being milled at the factory now and should be here in a few days. I have placed large parts orders for the surface-mount components, the DC-DC converters and the cables which should all be arriving shortly. I can begin assembling and reflowing everything when the PCBs arrive. Hoping to have these mailing out in about 1 week! Thanks again to all the backers :)
