2nd Gen Nexus 7 Receives Update, Fixes GPS and Touchscreen Issues

The new Nexus 7 finally saw the light of day on July 24th, and came with a bevy of new features, most notably the newest version of Android Jelly Bean, 4.3. No, it wasn’t the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie reveal that we’d all been itching for. Apparently, there were a few bugs in the system, and Google is fixing those today via an update.

The two most annoying issues with the new Nexus 7 were a GPS issue, as well as some touchscreen issues. The new update, JSS15Q makes quick work of these flaws.

Hi everyone,
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, Google Community Manager

Maintain patience, 2nd generation Nexus 7 owners. The update is beginning its rollout today, so it could hit soon, or later. But it is coming.
