ASUS was under much fire when they released their ASUS Transformer Prime Android tablet with GPS. While it appeared they would first brush the issue under the rug as the issues weren’t software related and could only be fixed using hardware, they came through and did what very little might do. They offered free GPS dongles to strengthen the signal and provide accurate GPS performance.
While ugly and inconvenient (the dongle covers the charging port), it’s probably the least they could do without going through an expensive and problematic device recall. Check and see if yours has arrived. There’s no clear way to sign up to order one of the dongles outside of an invitation to order one via email, so keep checking your inbox for one. [via Droid-Life]
