Nexus 7: Kitkat and GPS
Got Kitkat on my Nexus 7 2013 a few weeks ago. Haven't tried my Sygic GPS program since then, and when I tried to use it today, it could not lock onto any satellites. Tried a couple of other GPS apps, but no go. Anyone else have this problem?

Re: Kitkat and GPS
This happened to me also when I first took the OTA upgrade to KitKat back at Thanksgiving. At that time I gave up and went back to 4.3. Several weeks latter I tried the OTA again and as before the GPS initially would not lock nor would it see many satellites. This time, however, I experimented a bit, and went into the app GPS Status and told it to reset the AGPS data (Settings/Tools/Manage A-GPS State/Reset). That process took a few minutes, but after that, the GPS worked fine just as it had in 4.3. So, give that a try.
