    I've been complaining and signed the form but sending us an attachment to give us GPS is hardly what I'd call crap. Crap is no attempt to address it at all.

    I've got the docking station but I don't use it if I'm outside with the GPS and/or camera anyway. So it is a bit of a pain but doesn't really cause me concern. I'm just glad I'm getting one.

    Nevermind, we know the answer
    I'm guessing he broke his glass so he's scr*wed anyway you look at it.

Are they all defective and should I be looking for a replacement dongle or is this a subjective thing? I've used the GPS on my Transformer to lock in on my home address and that's it. Even that GPS location was off though by about 100 yards. Is that a common best distance? Thanks.

    Yes, but does your dongle dangle while doing a dance or does your dangling dongle die off during 'da disco boogie'?

    The issue with the GPS on the 201 is the Aluminum back restricts the GPS signal. Therefore, it's a good idea to order the free dongle in the event you want to use the GPS s it was intended to be used.

    I think it's the best available. I have seen it on sale but haven't checked lately. You can try it free and if you like it you can buy it.

    I have to somewhat agree. It is ridiculous to have an abscess on the bottom of my tablet just to get GPS. There is no way that Asus didn't know that the Prime's GPS/Wifi was crap when they shipped the product.

    The right thing to do, instead of throwing us a (dongle) bone would have been to stop production, revise the case/GPS/Wifi design (i.e. fix the case to allow for Wifi/GPS signals to pass through), conduct a full product recall campaign, replace the case of owner's unit(s) or replace with a modified production model.

Yes thanks Asus you are the best! I can't wait for you to release a wifi Dongle that allows you to attach the gps one under it. Dongle on Dongle technology.
