Eee Pad Transformer Prime owners rejoice. ASUS Singapore has announced that it will offer the external GPS extension kit for their Android tablet, for free.
The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime was launched in December 2011, though it was officially available in Singapore early this year. While the popular Android tablet offers good features and performance, the company stated that the GPS functionality had not met users’ expectations, partly because the Transformer Prime is not designed to be a professional GPS device. However, ASUS said it will offer all Eee Pad Transformer Prime owners a free external GPS extension kit, in the form of a dongle, which could help improve signal reception and optimize user experience.
To apply for the Transformer Prime GPS Extension kit, simply login to ASUS membership page (you may need to register if you have not done so), register your Eee Pad Transformer Prime and select "GPS Extension Kit Apply & Inquire" on the menu, and confirm delivery information.
Do note that the offer expires on 31 July 2012.
