Asus' new ploy to fix Transformer Prime GPS woes.

   The issues Asus has had with the gps functionality of its flagship tablet, the Transformer Prime, have been well documented. Asus has promised software enhancements to fix the issue but they don't seem to have silenced the disquiet of tablet owners with high expectations. 

    Asus has reached the point where they have acknowledged there are hardware issues with the device and they've got a plan to fix their issues. The company has announced they are to issue gps dongles to Transformer Prime owners who have suffered issues. The dongles will dock into the tablet where the keyboard dock usually does, so unfortunately you can only use the gps or the keyboard at one time which is still an annoyance but it is better than nothing.

   I must say it is good that Asus is offering after sale care for their customers, it's not something every company offers!
