I have an iPad Pro 12.9 inch. (And a 121GW obviously. :) ) Let me know if I can help.

I dare say, if you went here and signed up as a beta tester, and then posted a full res screen shot after getting an email with an installation link, that would be welcomed:

I'm not an EE--what am I doing here?

We need a beta tester with an iPad Pro or an iPad with a resolution of 2732 x 2048. We need a few screen shots in that size for the App Store, its part of the submission process.

Yes please! that would be very helpful! We definately need a beta tester for iPad Pro

is there any news about the EU backer (Johnny B. Goode) shipment? Has someone received the meter or at least the tracking number?

Was your meter shipped through Welectron (Germany) or shipped directly from Daveland?

Still no meter here in the USA.  Backer #528.  Did Kane ever ship the meters?

Shipped from Australia late on Friday 22nd and delivered to the UK Monday midday 25th. DHL delivery with StarShipIt providing notifications.

I chose to pay all taxes and clearance directly to DHL came to £22 in total.

I was expecting UK taxes+fees to end up at least twice that (~30 GBP in VAT alone) - how did they manage to calculate only 22 GBP inc fees?
I got my meter shipped to family in NZ (planned to pick it up personally in April, but the delay ruined that idea), would have gone the UK route had I known the charges would be that low!

Not seen the paperwork, I’m out of the country and somebody signed for it on my behalf after I paid the tax/clearance online on Friday.

I’d be interested to know how much people paid in advance. Very impressed with DHL collecting at 6pm on Friday in Australia and delivering at 1pm on Monday in the UK!

That is indeed quick - mine took longer to cross the ditch to NZ!

I had elected not to Pay VAT etc in advance and take my chances (I'm Scottish!). I got the DHL request to pay 22 UKP also, I paid it, and the 121GW departed DHL-Sydney today and  is now on it's way. Will be here in UK 2nd July.
Hmmm, maybe there will be more to pay once it hits the UK.....dunno!

"We will not be able to deliver your goods to you until we have paid the duties and taxes to customs on your behalf"

Sounds like the £22 is the only payment you need to make.

Hi all,

My 121GW got delivered today......so I installed Firmware V1.22 over V1.17 straight away and ran my first test........I'll call that a PASS.
Will be using this as my go-to bench meter for a while and see how things go.
Nice one Dave, great to have that extra digit down on the workbench.
Ian.

Edit:
June 27, 2018 12:47 Sydney - Australia Shipment picked up
June 29, 2018 11:03 Aberdeen - UK Shipment delivered

From Dave's latest updates
Quote
EU backers, sorry but your units will be delayed a bit because of production volume. They plan to finish production on 22nd June. After that the units will be shipped to Welectron in Germany for distribution. So hopefully shipping will be in June.

It would be good to know if the meters got produced yet and perhaps are on their way to Welectron.

But no pressure Dave - we know this is out of your control - it just would be good to know.

can we get an update on the Kane shipments of meters in the USA??

Kane should have had them in their hands shortly after June 11, so i had hope with that news id have mine by now, but no joy yet...
I'm pretty far down in the list, #935, still, it would be nice to know how they're progressing.
Others higher on the list haven't gotten theirs, so, I am curious if they have even started shipping, or maybe even that they didn't receive them yet...
Hobbyist and a retired engineer and possibly a test equipment addict, though, searching for the equipment to test for that.

I am expecting delivery from Welectron is there any way to change my address now? Is there any way to talk to the Welectron person responsible for shipping?

I had a talk with Welectron. It's not late for an address change but it would be better to go through Dave.
