Last night's leak proved to be right on the money, as ASUS has made the Transformer Prime GPS add-on hardware available for registered owners today. In case you've not been following the saga, there's an issue with the GPS on the 10.1-inch Transformer Prime. The issue being that it sucks -- it won't lock on very well, and won't stay locked if and when it finds it's location. Seems that sexy circular-patterned aluminum shell does a great job at blocking the GPS antenna.
To fix this (because everyone needs a Wifi-only, 10.1-inch handheld GPS unit) ASUS is giving away a bit of hardware that docks onto the bottom of the Prime. This exterior "thingy" looks to be a bit bulky and not-so-attractive, but the color matches your Prime and it's free. It's also available today if you're a registered owner of a Transformer Prime. We'll have a closer look when mine gets here, in the meantime hit the link to get your own.
Now all we need is a 10.1-inch dash mount, and we're in business!
