'Near' not working

[ Edited ]
480 Replies 13,924 Views edited 10-04-2012

This morning I picked up a 3G PS Vita - everything is fine and dandy, except for the 'Near' feature. I tried it with both using Wifi and 3G and in both cases I get an error saying that the data cannot be retreived.

 

I have enabled location in parental controls.

 

Any idea what is wrong?

 

Thanks!

Hi NostrobotUK,

 

I have queried this further and will update when I have more information.

 

Thanks,
