ASUS Transformer Prime OTA Update Improves GPS Performance
The ASUS Transformer Prime, one of the more popular Android tablets, has had its fair share of issues, but also some excellent support by ASUS. GPS performance is something that was supposedly improved in an earlier update, but apparently it didn’t solve the issue completely, and it remains to be seen whether any drivers can overcome the inherent design flaws posed by the metal unibody.
However, according to reports in our forums, GPS performance has indeed gotten better with the newest OTA update that started rolling out yesterday. It ups your build version to 220.127.116.11 (actually, people are receiving an even newer 18.104.22.168.1 build now), and the GPS driver version to 6.9.13.
Check out the forum thread for more details and download links for manual updating, in case you aren’t receiving it over-the-air yet.
