As we have reported before, the GPS issues within the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Android tablet / netbook have not necessarily been resolved after a few updates have been released for the known bug.
Many owners of the Transformer Prime have reported their frustration in the issue, which continues to plague the king of Android tablets.
Not really the memory you want to have embedded in the minds of potential android tablet owners in the future when the Apple's iPad 2 and new iPad (3rd generation) are ruling the roost.
Asus may see there's just no fixing this type of issue without either recalling the Transformer Prime tablets as a whole, or by giving away Free GPS dongles to those who apply.
The cheapest way is clearly the dongles, but will their current Transformer Prime users actually want/use these devices?
We guess it all depends on how critical GPS accuracy is to them personally.
To us, it's not that big a deal, and we wouldn't want a dongle hanging out the side of a tablet each time we wanted to use GPS either.
To appease the Prime owners however, a free GPS dongle will be shipped to anyone asking for it.
Here are some quotes to show Asus is serious about making their existing customers happy about owning their product:
"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 WiFi active.
GPS dongle will be provided for free when it arrives. ETA is mid April for this and we are setting up a process for it. We will inform you once the process is complete and the dongles here.
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."
