    GPS Extension & ROM advice

    So I recently got into drone flying and am wanting to repurpose the tablet for use on the drone. Problem is that the drone for some of the smart shots rely on the device GPS as well as onboard, follow me for instance, the drone will follow the device's gps. I have yet to get a decent GPS signal on the TF300T tablet and came across the GPS extension for the TF201 and was wondering if that would work on the 300T. Would be a great addon and help me keep the tablet in good use for a while to come. Next question out of the accessories department was are there any decent roms that run 4.3 or later?

    Well last question first, 'cause it's easy--a resounding yes.

    As far as an "extension" for GPS, are you talking about the wierd external antenna Asus came up with because the GPS on the 201 was so dismal it was about to cause lawsuits? From what I've read it wasn't all that, anyway. I doubt it would work at all on a 300, even if you could find one. However, if you do install @timduru's latest KatKiss ROM, you could also install his K.A.T. app which might help the GPS. It didn't help the GPS on my 300, but I'm 99 1/2% sure its GPS radio is kaput. It's never worked for me at all, under any ROM. It did help out the GPS on both my 700s.

    Can't say for sure on the extension, I've never read about it on any other tab than the 201. If you have one, you might try it and see? AFAIK KatKiss is the only Nougat ROM available for the 300, and like all KatKiss ROMs it works exceptionally well. My personal opinion is that we get about as much performance as possible out of anything from Lollipop on, so long as the /data partition is formatted as f2fs. The advantage to KatKiss ROMs is that the dev knows as much about TFs as anyone alive, and is very, very good at squashing bugs, so that we are blessed with very useable ROMs with all Google's latest bells & whistles very soon after Google releases the new version. I think timduru's current record is two or three days from Google release to KatKiss release. Some say he never sleeps, some claim he found HG Wells' time machine and uses that. I'm just grateful.
