New Nexus 7 Suffering from GPS Issues

nexus 7 2013

Google’s latest Nexus 7 is a fantastic piece of hardware: the 1080p display is among the highest-resolution panels ever put on such a device, and the Qualcomm SoC ensures that the tablet is as fast as any other device on the market. However, it appears that the 2013 Nexus 7 is not without its issues: according to various reports across the internet, there’s something wrong with the GPS chipset.

The issue seems to be with continued use of satellite tracking, which is necessary with turn-by-turn navigation. Hopefully the issue is in software, and can be fixed via an OTA update; regardless, Google has already stated that they are looking in to the issue.

Is your device affected?
