Asus To Fix Transformer Prime GPS Issues With a GPS Dongle

Advertisement

The Asus Transformer Prime TF201 is a great tablet but unfortunately many users are complaining about poor GPS performance and overall operation. The problem, while Asus tried to address it with a software update, seems to be by design and now the manufacturer has something else in mind to try and make its customers happy.

According to an e-mail chain between an XDA Developers member and Asus, the company allegedly said: “we will be releasing a dongle shortly that will address the GPS function and be a fully usable GPS that will lock onto many satellites and keep their lock with wi-fi active”.

“It will look similar to the hinge from the dock. Where it will be a flush fit on the bottom of the unit if held in landscape matching the color of your Prime chassis” and will be “provided for free” around mid-April. Is this great news or what? Additionally, there seems to be a newer batch of Transformer Prime tablets that have better WiFi performance. Look for the “C3” code in the serial number.
