The tablet then goes into searching mode with the GPS icon blinking. According to these hard luck Nexus 7 owners, sometimes rebooting the slate helps, sometimes it doesn't. Even exchanging the affected unit for another one didn't solve the problem for at least one owner.
According to that same owner of the slate, Google is aware of the situation and is working on a fix, although details were sketchy as to when it might be rolled out. We are wondering how many of our readers have a new Nexus 7 that is just as balky when it comes to the GPS signal. Drop us a comment in the box below. And as far as an update from Google is concerned, keep your eyes right here. As soon as we hear about it, we will pass along the word to you.
