How to improve Nexus 7 GPS performance?

But you still can make Nexus 7 GPS signal lock faster with little of this free Android application ~ FasterFix. Note – root access is required.

  1. I’m in North America (Huntsville, Alabama, USA) and my GPS worked perfectly before I tried this app. Now my GPS is always 200m off (due North of my true location) and it never seems to settle down.

    I even re-flashed the stock Google Nexus 7 ROM and it didn’t fix this problem.

    How do I get back to the factory setup?
