The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet has a 10.1 inch display, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. But many customers have complained about poor GPS performance, so Asus has decided to do something about it.
As expected, the company is offering a free accessory designed to help you get a better GPS signal on the Transformer Prime. You can register for one starting today, and Asus will continue accepting applications through July 31st, 2012.
It turns out the GPS attachment isn’t simply a USB thumb-drive shaped dongle though. It’s a rather large attachment that you connect to the bottom of the tablet where the docking port is.
In other words, as SlashGear points out, you can’t use the GPS and the Asus Transformer keyboard dock at the same time.
But it’s nice to know that Asus is taking user complaints seriously enough to develop a hardware solution and then give it away for free.
