New Nexus 7 2 hits problems with GPS

We are hearing reports from owners of the new Google Nexus 7 posting problems experienced with the GPS system, and remarks have been made about a number of issues encountered with this feature. In many circumstances rebooting their slate has rectified these problems, but others are still having trouble.

One owner documented their problems as the GPS goes out after just two minutes, while others have said their device will lock on to the satellite, but the tracking suddenly stops after about 10 to 30 minutes. Others have discussed issues with the icon constantly blinking while one owner mentioned how his replaced version was just a case of swapping one affected unit for another.

Apparently, Google has acknowledged this and are currently is working on a fix, but we are unsure when this come about. Comments on this situation can be seen over on the Google Product Forums, along with other problems encountered with the GPS signal, while others have said that rebooting the system can sometime sort this issue out.

Those of you still unsure whether to get the new Google Nexus 7 may find our recent article interesting, as this focuses on the screen clarity of the Nexus 7 2 vs. iPad mini. In this we showed a video of both products playing movies and YouTube videos comparing the clarity of both.

The video lets us in on a visual impression of the two devices, while the presenter gives us the impression he prefers the screen clarity of the new Nexus 7 2, although we understand that the premium materials used in the iPad Mini are welcomed, as opposed to the slightly smaller but thicker plastic Nexus 7 2.

Have you been experiencing problems with the GPS on your new Google Nexus 7 2?
