I am from the United States and I sent Hornby America an email asking when Oxigen might be available to purchase. They replied:
"Thank you for the inquiry. We hope to have the Oxigen system available late May/early June pending US release by Slot.it".

Was Oxigen not released to the US at the same time as the rest of the world? At this point, another two months is probably not a big deal, but it is a little frustrating not to have the same availability. (Just like motorcycles, you Europeans always get the cool stuff first).

Not available in a lot of Europe either, I had to buy from Italy. The path through Distribution to Retail is taking a while to fill.

Every country could have it at the same time, but not every national distributor runs their business with the same imperitives, order cycles and logistics.

QUOTE (Miminut @ 8 Apr 2012, 09:27) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>It is amazing that a small country like New Zealand has had it for approx 6 weeks and bets me to understand why countries in Europe and the USA do not have it.

Obviously there are some distributors that believed in the product, some others... less so. But that's changing.

Besides, we've asked the distributors to withhold sales for 15 days - to restart this week.
The reason is as follows: approximately one month ago, we discovered (thanks to Richard Girling) a problem in the allocation of the oXigen channels - something that had to be fixed, with a 2.0 version, to the expense of breaking compatibility with the existing parts (all version 1.0). So we had to do the work of changing what had to be changed, test it (we did some racing and public demonstration at the Modena 'Play!' fair, and all went well), prepare the new flash code, test the upgrade, prepare manuals and upload everything to our web site.
We did not want parts with v. 2.0 to be sold before everything was ready for the upgrade, to avoid causing too much trouble.
We are now ready to give you all the links to reflashing sw, manuals, and firmware

Download the new manuals from
http://www.slot.it/INGLESE/Oxigen_Manuals.html
In particular, new is the 'bootloader' manual. I have not proof-read it well yet, probably...

Grab the bootloading sw from
http://www.slot.it/INGLESE/Oxigen_Software.html

Get the Firmware (all versions, including current 1.x and 2.x)
http://www.slot.it/INGLESE/Oxigen_Firmware.html

Be aware: all oXigen parts purchased from now on should be 2.x - so if you have 1.x units, you will have to upgrade.
One small known bug have been fixed, too: if you pressed lane up, and brake, as if you were reprogramming the car to a different channel, in race mode, you'd also add your own laps to the new channel's car, if present. It's very nice to do so to your mate's score, but I guessed it had to be fixed


Sorry for the inconvenience.

Regards
Maurizio

It may sound like I am being impatient for Oxigen to be released here in the US, but I would rather wait a little longer to get more of the bugs worked out of the system first. I very much appreciate Slot.It's due diligence on this matter, and I appreciate the fact that the equipment can be updated as time goes by. Keep up the good work.
