    ASUS placates Transformer Prime owners with free GPS Extension Kit add-on



    ASUS took a few OTA stabs at fixing the Transformer Prime's satellite blindness, sure, but now the outfit is taking a more direct approach at fixing its GPS reception woes: hardware. New Prime owners registering their slab on ASUS' member site are now being greeted with an application for a GPS Extension Kit, a free dongle that "may help improve signal reception and optimize the user experience." According to a series of emails posted by an XDA forums user, the kit is due to ship in mid-April, and will "be a flush fit on the bottom of the unit if held in landscape, matching the color of your Prime Chassis." ASUS says the dongle will be available to all customers who picked up the tablet, and carefully notes that the accessory does not "replace, alter or amend any existing warranties." Fair enough. Now, what if we want to type while we find our way around the world?

    Thanks for passing this on. I think it will be worth picking up so I'll look into it. I wonder if it will possibly help on the wifi reception as well?

    OMG!! Did it actually work?? I week ago I got back home and just had the crazy idea to sent Asus an e-mail suggesting an extension on the bottom of the unit that will fix and improve the wifi and gps problem. And now this!! If by any chance there is an update about this with wifi support I am taking "dips" on the idea

    My bad sfirchau. Its true it came from Engadget. Forgot to mention it. I posted it in a hurry! So has anyone found out anything new about it. I am guessing you must be a Prime owner to get it since they say its for free.
