asus hasn't said they are giving up on GPS, they are saying that GPS performance will never be excellent due to the design of the prime, because of that they are going to stop marketing the feature so that people won't try to buy it as a standalone GPS unit, but they will continue to make it work as best as it can.
we'll see what that ends up meaning over the next weeks/months, while mine gets a real finnicky lock on sats, it works well enough for what i generally need it for, which is opening google maps and seeing how to get somewhere or where some place is, which means i am connected to wifi, which means the a-gps works well enough to position me to accomplish that.
but i digress. i am also curious if anyone has been refused a refund by gamestop, because there is no way i would find that acceptable as a customer. no refund on opened video games makes sense, but if they try to push it on hardware, that's just bull****.
