Have a question?
This is dragging on and I would like to see proof of that production is now happening. If we have not received our rewards by mid March we might never see any. Looks like a failed project. Wonder if Kickstarter has statistics on failure rate or if they are just happy taking their cut.
@ Bruce I have plenty of space for the download.
@Bruce, according to the net, the Chinese holidays started on the 16th and last 23 days
@ Jun Otomo - I agree that we should get another update. If nothing else, tell us if they have resolved their supply issues.
In my response to Odchard, I questioned whether we would see this project completed. In the last update, Jan. 19, they said, "I'd like to say, for the sake of posterity - that there is a ZERO PERCENT CHANCE THAT THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT DELIVER - IT'S JUST A QUESTION OF HOW QUICKLY WE CAN GET THEM OUT THE DOOR, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE UPCOMING CHINESE HOLIDAYS."
Well, the Chinese holidays should be over now, or very soon, as the New Year has come and gone. So, an update in the coming week would be both timely and needed.
@ Odchard Piquant - This is what I said to another backer 5 days ago - "The money you pledged has, most likely, already been spent on this project for development, testing and - hopefully - production. Unfortunately, I am beginning to question whether the last step will take place. This is a classic example of where someone has an idea, but does not have the experience or resources to turn the idea into reality. The original creators(s) were bought out by the design company hired to develop the HUD. Now, they have had their own issues.
I would like to receive a refund on my backing
almost one month without updates
@ Fezzik - The problem could be the limited space available on the phone. You need to go into settings and check your storage space. Is there any way to download a subset of the maps?
@MaxStarter: The file size is 5 gig, and I have tried it over multiple wifi networks, it always stalls at 44%
You tried to download a 5 gig file to your phone??
I cannot download the US and Canada maps in Navmii. It gets to 44% and then freezes. I have sent messages to Navmii, and to Hudify and have not received a reply or acknowledgment. Has anyone else been able to download the map (>5 gig)?
@ Wayne - There is not a way to transfer a pledge from one project to another. The money you pledged has, most likely, already been spent on this project for development, testing and - hopefully - production. Unfortunately, I am beginning to question whether the last step will take place. This is a classic example of where someone has an idea, but does not have the experience or resources to turn the idea into reality. The original creators(s) were bought out by the design company hired to develop the HUD. Now, they have had their own issues.
Is there a way to transfer the original pledge and to Hudify Wireless?
soo when there will be a new update?
@Bruce, fortunately the magnets are the one part of the design that hasn't changed, which must be a bonus.
Bradley has his team on it.
@ MaxStarter - Sorry for the delay. Since I don't work on the project, I would not hazard a guess about when the next step will be completed, let alone the entire project. I just hope it's done before I take my planned trip in the spring.
@Bruce, there is a chance that the magnets will arrive before Chinese New Year.
@ Kawa - They have not completed production. It appears it will be a while. Please read the latest update.
It has been more than months and I still have not received it.??
Best of luck with your wife. My family has also been touched by cancer. You have my best, the two of you be vigilant, and treat each day as the gift that it is.
Bradley, I just want to know when is your target shipping date. Within this month? next month?
@Creator I'll pray for your wife's recovery. Family first.
Bradley, family always comes first. I may be disappointed that we don’t have our Hudifys yet but completely understand, and I can wait longer. I wish a quick and healthy recovery to Ivey. You are doing the right thing taking care of her. Cancer sucks!
Fingers crossed that the magnets turn up. With backers out of your way you'll be able to focus on your family
Thank you for the update Bradley. Wishing you all strength and Ivey a full recovery. Family first mate!
Hi Bradley, Just saw your update about the turbulent period you are going through. No worries, it would be alright soon. Wish speedy recovery for your wife. We are ok to get the HUD with some delay but I am confident, it would be a awesome, once we get it.
Where is update #25 that was promised 1 week after update #24 back in early December? Anyone else see it??
@Frank, your life won't fall apart without a HUD. Most have managed without until now. Just wait a bit longer
What is everyone else buying instead of this?
Have seen similar things for sale already. Where are the updates?. Some info please!.
No one received the information on the additional units at $15. Next Monday is the 22nd of January. In the video a statement was made if they could not make the shipment by that day they would gladly refund the full amount of the $15 extra purchase. Well I think they knew they could not do it so it never came out.
In the early days of my Kickstarter, I assumed the lack of news meant that someone was busy finalising delivery.
With experience no news actually means bad news.
Was anyone able to take advantage of the "15 dollar" offer. I never receive any further information after it was announced that it would be made available to us.
Did the offer for $15 per Unit for (Kickstarter contributors to get up to 5 more ) get sent yet as promised in January ? Maybe I missed that .. and the updates promised as soon as health issues within your family were resolved, those would be very assuring news to keep all of us in the loop instead of out floating in the unknown ..
I was reviewing my current Kickstarter projects and realized that I had not seen anything - ANYTHING- on this product. Happy to see that delivery should be happening in the not to distant future- but I am concerned that I have not recieved any email updates.
Backer-Only one-time $15 Sale ? Nope.
Updates every two weeks? Nope.
Hudly looks cool, could watch films on the go :)
Harish no-one has one yet we have to wait until late January.
Hi it's been a long time since I backed this project. As I read that all the backers have received the product. I'm still waiting for mine. Please could you let me know what is happening to mine ?
Update? Coming Soon ? Info about offers made to Kickstarter Buyers ? BUELLER? BUELLER? BUELLER?
On december 4th we was promised an update within 2 weeks.
On Jan 2nd, we was promised an update within days...still soon 2 weeks later no update.
Please, the update do not need to be extensive. Only a few lines that show that you still are alive and mention the current prognos:
e.g. We have now achieved this and expect to deliver on xyz.
2ndly, I think the ones who has accepted the $15 offer also require a short comment.
Anyhow, please, keep the update short...but please do give us an update of something !
Hello, I did not receive the email about the $15 offer, how do I get that offer? and when is the product likely to be shipping
Where’s the update that’s suppose to come out last week?
So there is a new startup called Hudly, by I suppose exactly the same people. I don’t want to be negative, but it all is kind of weird. We still did not receive ours and all of a sudden exactly the same device with the similar name on the Kickstarter collecting money again. To be honest my first thought was to report the project Hudly to Kickstarter and to alert people willing to invest in it. I read some
of the comments below, so I will wait this week. It is a bit fishy though...
HUD displays are generally available. You can search Kickstarter for HUD too, and find several.
Hudify are building brand on quality and affordability. Delivery is the last piece in the jigsaw.
The one in the link is a different brand has nothing to do with this design.
Okay I am getting confused.
1). There was supposed to be a link to get another unit at a discounted price. If that unit did not delivered by the 22nd of January the funds would be refunded. No link was shared.
2) We are about 2 weeks from that date and we have no updates to say that the items will be out for delivery. Are we on track?
3). Why is the product being marketed on the link Tim shared and saying its going to be delivered in 2-3 weeks. We have not even got ours yet but the ad shows people who have already purchased giving reviews
What is the scoop.
Have you seen this? https://gethuddy.io/offer-01/…
@Frank, If you looked at our delivery timeline (projected at the outset of the project) we estimated shipping in July/August. By that measure (which was a projection in the first place) we're a little over 100 days past due. If you'll take a look at the updates you'll find a wealth of information documenting the status and progress over that time. We're currently planning and hoping to ship this month, but will be posting an update this week on the current status outlining things for backers.
Thanks for your input/comment, and most of all for your patience and understanding.
