Registration for Transformer Prime GPS dongle now open

Still suffering from spotty or non-existent GPS signal on your beloved Transformer Prime? Already heard the news that Asus is set to offer a GPS dongle to resolve the issue? Well time to get registering folks as the website is now live.

Those of you holding out for a software fix will unfortunately be disappointed as it appears that the rather unsightly dongle is your only hope. The dongle plugs into the proprietary port which in turn means you won’t be able to use it whilst charging or in conjunction with the laptop dock. Quite the sacrifice to make for an accurate GPS lock.

Naturally the dongle will be absolutely free providing you register before the 31st of July 2012. There’s no word on when you should expect to receive the unit once ordered nor is there any clarification as to what happens beyond the cut off date. Still, it’s refreshing to see Asus is dedicated to providing a solution to the messy situation.

Click the link below to register for your dongle.

So what’s the verdict owners of the Transformer Prime, are you happy with this solution? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.

    GPS is not my concern right now, but the Camera.  It’s not working anymore after the update. All i can see is a green static on the screen.  I know a lot of users have the same problem with me.
