Dongle works like the built-in GPS with version 15 but works great with 21

I got mine through on Friday last week. I installed sygic from aptoide and it actually works 100% improvement on gps locks while moving. Thank you Asus for a great dongle.

The next day I tried again, this time it did fluctuate a lot more but I was getting 4/5 then it would jump to 8/9 back to 4/5 back up. I couldnt believe it. I dont ever use gps on my tablet anyway so it doesnt matter to me either way if it works or not. lol
I have a C5 serial and thats around the same thing that I get too. Using GPS test, I've seen the accuracy go as low as 18 ft outside, usually around 36-72 ft range. Indoors, I have seen it go as low as 36 ft, usually around the 48-96 ft range. Despite all of that, GPS is still useless because once I start moving, Google Navigation can't track me.

Will trying an offline navigation software help me or will I have to resort to the dongle :/

Question Where can I buy a GPS Dongle?

I got a used TF201 on 4.1.1 a few days back, I've already unlocked and rooted it following the great guides here,
but now I need a dongle for it, does anyone know where I could get one?
Thanks in advance.


I got one from dpwhitty11, thanks to those who responded

Maybe see if anyone in this thread still has one? I got rid of mine there.
