ASUS Transformer Prime still faces bad GPS post-fix

Transformer Prime GPS worse after software update

The weak GPS performance of the ASUS Transformer Prime was reportedly made even worse by a recent update from the maker. Members posting on the XDA-Developers forums claim the signal went from very weak before the update to absolutely non-existent after installing the second update after the original upgrade to Android 4.0. Leaving the tablet on the window sill for 25 minutes resulted in zero satellites being picked up by the tablet's GPS sensor, one member said.

ASUS has previously stated that the tablet's "metallic unibody design" is at least partially to blame for the weak GPS signal performance, as it interferes with the signals reaching the sensor. The TF700 that will effectively replace it is supposed to solve this and has led some to accuse ASUS of botching the hardware design and charging customers for the fix.
