Transformer Prime Owners To Get A Free GPS Dongle From Asus
By on April 8th, 2012

The Asus Transformer Prime, launched late last year, is un-arguably the best Android tablet in the market right now. Not only does the device run on the latest version of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich – it also packs in a powerful quad-core Tegra 3 processor from Nvidia. The build quality, battery life and the camera of the device, and most importantly, its pricing were also top-notch. However, the Transformer Prime was plagued with poor GPS performance and Wi-Fi issues soon after its launch.

Later on, Asus identified the poor GPS performance of the tablet a design flaw, and removed GPS as a feature from the official spec sheet of the handset. The company tried its best to improve the GPS reception of the tablet by rolling out numerous software updates, but that only improved matters to a certain extent.

Now, Asus has gone a step further and will be providing all Transformer Prime owners with a free GPS dongle. The GPS dongle is already being tested by some testers, and they are happy with how well the dongle goes with the Prime. All Prime owners need to register over at Asus website’s to be eligible for the free dongle though.

The folks over at Android Police have also confirmed that the newer builds of the Transformer Prime have received tweaks, which improve the Wi-Fi performance of the device and bring it on par to its predecessor’s (original Transformer).
