A little while ago we were the first to break the news that Asus was making a GPS Dongle that would improve the GPS on the TF201 that everyone complained about so much. Many called the Transformer Prime a failed launch because of this issue but now they are making up for it by releasing the GPS Dongle. The Dongle will be officially announced tomorrow and will be available to all Prime owners for free but why wait until tomorrow when we can show you now.
*Update* the last FOTA that was given to the Prime added support for the Dongle you may have no even noticed this update as it was forced onto your device*
Pictures of Dongle attached to the Prime
This is the back of the Dongle that will match the color of you Prime, looks just like the keyboard dock latch.
This is the lock that will lock the GPS dongle into place that looks exactly like the one on the keyboard dock also.
This is the front of the Dongle here you can see there is a white arrow which will match up with the one on the Prime to help you plug it in easier.
Here is the part if the Dongle that uses the 40 pin proprietary connector that will connect the tablet, same place used for the dock, and charging port.
This is the part that will lock into the tablet using the groove that is made for the dock.
We can also confirm this product works very good and will massively improve GPS like Asus says it will. This is an engineering sample that we got pictures of so the end product will likely have some Asus branding on it as well.
The Dongle fits very well to the tablet and it fits snug so once attached no need to worry about it wobbling or falling off.
You will see an official announcement regarding this Dongle tomorrow from Asus.
