My dongle arrived today (UK user, delivered by TNT).
Just before it arrived I notice a tiny crack on my touchscreen caused by the dock.
It's going back to Asus before it brakes properly but not before I send it I am getting an independant engineers report done).
To top off a good day the GPS dongle dosent fit properly. There is not enough clearance at the front where it touches the touchscreen. I could possibly force it on an make it fit but this would risk finishing off the crack in the touchscreen. So I cant even test it.
Bahhhhh!

Do you have a full body skin protector without cutouts for the keyboard? Only reason why I would see the dongle not fitting like it's suppose to.

I find it hard that screen protectors would make it that tight, I guess ASUS out-did themselves with making this exactly to spec. Not a bad thing lol, but crazy that people are having issues from attachments that are like less than 1 mm thick.

A crack in the screen + GPS not fitting says to me that the screen hasn't been properly fitted. If you sight along the edge of the screen is it bowed out around the connector or is the screen sticking out above the "case" more at one end than the other?

I agree it's a tight fit but that's what you want imo. You don't want it loose and moving around. That will create more problems damaging your tablet... it may also damage the 40 pin connector.
Then I'm sure people here will start complaining that it's too loose and is not snug enough scratching the tablet and such.

Oh yeah, like I said, totally a good thing lol

Just kind of surprising considering all the mass-production issues we've been seeing from them. I'm wondering how many of these turn out faulty, and if they're only covered for a year under implied warranty or if they'll replace them when they mess up even further down the road, if they'll replace them at all.

Mine doesn't fit either. Haha
I'm pushing pretty hard and it doesn't snap in.

Not really surprised.
