How to solve the multitouch and GPS problem in Nexus 7


Google is rolling out the Update of new Nexus 7 & to Bugfix GPS and multitouch issues

Previously Nexus’s devices were proceeding the minor security updates, but this time the Nexus 7 own-self need to be fix. The New Nexus 7 has couple of issues like GPS and Multitouch problem. Many users reported the Multitouch performance and GPS issues. Its kind of bummer to hear that some folks are running into touchscreen issues on their shinny Nexus 7.

But Google is also taking it seriously, as Google Community manager, Paul Wilcox had said on Forum yesterday;

“As a couple of you have mentioned, there’s a new system update that’s started rolling out for your Nexus 7s. This update does address the touchscreen issues discussed in this thread. If you’re one of the people experiencing touchscreen issues, please let us know how it’s going after you’ve received and installed the update”.

Paul wilcox also confirmed that this update should fix the GPS issues as well;

“Thank you for your patience while we’ve been working on this. As Justin mentioned, there is a new over the air update for Nexus 7 rolling out now that addresses the GPS issue discussed here. We look forward to hearing feedback about your GPS experience after you’ve received the update”.


Above message from paul also give idea that Google is still also settling GPS issue, yet they have focused on Multitouch screen problem.

The good news is that Google has completely pulled the troublesome JSS15J update. In other words If you have a current generation Nexus 7 that is showing an available update it should be safe to proceed.

It means user will not exchange their Nexus 7 in hope of getting a better working tablet in term of this update.
