    Since my update to 4.3 I have been having issues with GPS not connecting for very long periods of time. More so than before for sure. And after I get a signal it seems to drop more often.

    Anyone other Galaxy Nexus having this issue?

    Hmm, haven't updated my wife's phone yet (it's on a custom ROM). I will say hers is nowhere near as fast and accurate as my S3.
    I wonder if it has anything to do with the Nexus 7's problems with GPS (the new one). Likely that's a hardware thing (Asus doesn't have the best track record with GPS, cough, TF Prime, cough).

    Try following the steps listed here. Resetting always seems to fix my problem.

    Notice the same on mine. Was getting close to my destination and did a search of the final address like I normally would a min or so out. It easily took 5 min to get a lock and was unstable. Its never behaved like that before.

    Will try the tip above. Thanks!
