    Default Nexus 7 doesn't appear in Android Device Manager

    My 2012 N7 doesn't show in Android Device Manager. My Nexus 4 shows just fine.

    Any ideas?

    When you plugin your phone, on your phone, you need to click USB Storage, did you do that?

    Another thing to try is to enable Debuging on your phone, and install drivers, to check if device manager can detect it.

    Also, try this OEM USB Drivers | Android Developers

    I think he means the new "remote wipe your device" feature in google play...

    You use the same Gmail account for both devices?

    Same here. My Droid Razr shows up just fine, but no Nexus 7 listed at all. I have verified it is on and even turned it off and back on but that did nothing.

    Yes, I mean the new 'find and wipe' service in Google Play for all Android devices. The N7 has a GPS so not sure what the issue is.

    Perhaps it just hasn't been fully pushed to your device.

    I'm seeing similar, my Nexus 7 2nd gen is in device manager and I can track it fine, however my GS4 phone is not. Both devices show it in device administrators under security, however If I go to the Google settings app, only my Nexus 7 shows the options for device manager.

    Didn't get to test it until I got home tonight. My N7 does not appear in my Android Device Manager either.

    My nexus 4 and 7 show up but not my vzw galaxy nexus. Oddly the nexus 7 I returned for screen lift a few months back does show up on the list (no I can't wipe it or anything, it's just on the list).

    This is posted on the device manager help page, did the trick for me:

    If your Android device doesn't appear in Android Device Manager, or if you see Unknown location despite your device being online and running Google Play services version 3.2.25 or higher, follow these steps:

    1. Open Google Settings from your device's apps menu.
    2.Touch Android Device Manager.
    3. Uncheck Allow remote factory reset.
    4. Go to your device's main Settings menu, then touch Apps > All > Google Play services.
    5. Touch Clear Data. Note that this action doesn't remove personal data.
    6. Go back to Google Settings and select Allow remote factory reset.
    7. Restart your device.
    Once your device restarts, wait around five minutes and refresh android.com/devicemanager.

    If that doesn't work, so back into Google Settings, then click on Location. On my tablet the Access Location box was unchecked. Once that box was checked ADM now sees my tablet.

    The Google Device Manager in your device may not be activated. Try this:

    Go to "Settings" and select "Security", then tap on "Device Administrators". You will now see "Android Device Manager". If it’s unchecked, it means it’s disabled. To re-enable it, just tap on it and tap Activate at the bottom of the next screen. Android Device Manager should now be checked and in service.

    Have a nice day !!
