Earlier today we told you about ASUS extending warranties on the Transformer Prime because of GPS issues (and even offering refunds in the UK). Well, now the manufacturer has issued a quick software update in an attempt to fix the wonky GPS performance affecting T-Prime users everywhere. The update will bring the Prime’s build version up to IML74K.US_epad-188.8.131.52-20120117 as well as update the GPS software to version 6.9.13.
Users are already reporting better performance indoors which is promising to say the least. If you haven’t been prompted for the update, you can manually check for one by jumping into your Settings > System > About Tablet and check for a new update.
This is about as good as it’s going to get until ASUS can find a way to update the aluminum backplate over-the-air. Something we don’t see happening anytime this millennium.
