GPS does not work on the new Nexus 7: Side-by-side GPS comparison of the old and new Nexus 7.
The old 2012 Nexus 7 is on the left and the new 2013 Nexus 7 is on the right.
You can tell them apart by the width of the bezel on the left and right sides (look for the left edge of the old Nexus 7 and the right edge of the new Nexus 7).
Both are running the "GPS Test" app.
Both have Android 4.3, and the new Nexus 7 has the JSS15R update.
The old Nexus 7 has a GPS lock (green circle at the upper left) with 7 satellites in view and 5 in use.
The new Nexus 7 does not have a lock (yellow circle at the upper left, "16" in the accuracy is grayed out) with 15 satellites in view and none in use.
The 12:51 at the lower right of the new Nexus 7 shows that it has gone 8 minutes without getting a lock.
The gray "1" at the lower right of the new Nexus 7 shows that it was moving at 1 MPH at the time of the last lock.
That is because it was able to get a lock outside, and I was walking at 1 MPH when I came indoors.
This is evidence that 1) the ability to get a GPS lock, at least after the JSS15R update, is not an issue with apps, because the new Nexus 7 was able to get a lock outside, and 2) the new Nexus 7 has a much weaker GPS receiver than the old Nexus 7.
