The New Nexus 7 may be one of the most significant consumer electronics gadgets to hit the market this year, but that doesn’t mean that it is 100% perfect. According to recent reports, which have surfaced on most of the significant Android portals such as Android Police, XDA Developers and Google’s own forums, the new Nexus 7 has faulty GPS performance.

A multitude of reports are coming in from new Nexus 7 owners reporting that they have massive GPS issues on their new affordable, feature rich tablet. Apparently users are complaining that their Nexus 7 devices have GPS signal for a few minutes before it goes away completely and not coming back on. Google has apparently noticed the issue and it’s under an investigation to see if they can fix the issue, which could spread globally if left untreated considering how quickly the new Nexus 7 is rolling out across the globe.

It seems that the issue is experienced on almost all devices, with most users not picking up the issue as they barely use the GPS features for long enough. For now, it seems that Apple Maps may be your best option, so buy an iPad Mini!
