    Free GPS Dongle to be given to Prime Owners by ASUS, Register Now at ASUS VIP

    Over at XDA there is news that the Transformer Prime Owners will get a free GPS Dongle. Process to be revealed around mid april. Interface is apparently unknown but I'd suspect its BT. Maybe this is Gary's big news? Anyway I think that's a solid by ASUS!
    <br/> <br/>
    Don't freak out if you can't order one, the process isn't official yet and will be soon. Just think of this as a confirmation that ASUS is looking out for you and not trying to screw you of geotagging etc..

    Lol I mean actually navigate in the city work. I'd take navigate on an ocean work. Either way this is really solid and shows the qualities of Asus as a company.

    Btw here's the link to my blog post which will have links and cover any new confirmation or news. http://mark-tech.blogspot.com/2012/0...dongle-to.html

    OK I can confirm this. If you go to VIP ASUS Member area and register device you'll be prompted to enter your address to get a GPS Dongle. Below is a transcript from the website. " Thank you for purchasing the ASUS Eee Transformer Prime TF201, and helping to make it the most popular Android based tablet since its launch in December 2011. We greatly appreciate feedback from our valued customers about our products, and take it very seriously. The response to the TF201 generally has been overwhelmingly positive, but we understand that, in certain regions, the GPS functionality has not met some userís expectations.

    Free Dongle! At ASUS, we are committed to delivering innovative, high-quality products and services, and our customersí experience is important to us. Although the TF201 is not a professional GPS device, as part of our unwavering commitment to our customers we are offering all customers who purchased a TF201 system a free external GPS extension kit, called a dongle, which may help improve signal reception and optimize the user experience. We are pleased to announce this offer as part of our commitment to customer service, but it does not replace, alter or amend any existing warranties you may have.We also encourage you to contact ASUS customer support in your local region directly if you are experiencing GPS related problems.

    ASUS prides itself on delivering an unrivalled user experience, and we offer our sincere apologies for any inconvenience that our customers may have encountered."

    THANKS ASUS

    yes i just went there, registered, email came a couple minutes after. clicked on embedded link, went back to asus site, logged in, entered my mailing address and it says it is on its way to me. the direct link to register if it helps, to the asus registration area that is,

    also from what i have read it is not a usb dongle rather one that will fit into the 40 pin slot on the tablet and will be flush with the tablet and not protrude out, feedback from individuals said to have tested the prototype.

    Hm, can't seem to register my device. Serial number is incorrect, even though I've gone through and tried every combination of 0 and O. Maybe I'll call them to try to get the dongle.

    That happened to me. I tried the O instead of 0 and keep hitting enter and I finally went thru.

    I just went to Asus' website and registered my prime. No invite to sign up for the dongle, no email. So what to do now? My prime has never even "seen" a single satellite.
