Google’s new Nexus 7 may have the best display of any small tablet but it’s showing some deficiencies in other areas. PhoneArena reports that several early adopters of the new Nexus 7 have complained about the tablet’s GPS performance and have said that it will shut down after being online for as little as two minutes. From there, users say they have to reboot the tablet to get the GPS to work again, although there is still no guarantee that this tactic will work. PhoneArena says that Google is aware of the problem and is apparently working on a fix, although there’s no timeline for when it will be released.
