We’ve already talked about the GPS issues that plague each and every ASUS EEE Pad Transformer Prime tablet thanks to its metallic case. ASUS initially said there’s a design issue and even erased the GPS mention from the specs sheet, leaving users with no alternative to weak GPS signal problems.
Then, at CES 2012, ASUS announced the high end TF700T Transformer Prime, which features a redesigned back, with a plastic area above the antennas, that will help boost signal strength for all wireless chips inside the slate.
That’s why it’s pretty amazing to see ASUS releasing an OTA (Over the Air) software update for the Transformer Prime TF201, which is said to solve the GPS issues. Probably they’ve boosted the reception power, which in terms means lower battery life when you’re using the GPS connection, but at least it’s working, compared to the previous software version.
If you’re one of the owners head on to System – About Tablet, and see if your update has arrived. And don’t forget to let us know how it works for you.
