'Near' not working

[ Edited ]
481 Replies 14,722 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 guys,

 

It seems that the Near issues experienced following launch have been rectified with the 1.66 system software update.

 

If any of you are still having problems please let me know or update this thread.

 

Cheers,

 

SFZ

Hi NostrobotUK,

 

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

Same for me. I've got the wi-fi version and Near and maps are not working. Hopefully it's fixable.

Mine and the wifes phones get our location fine but the vita is over a hundred miles away.  maybe leaving the house tomorrow will give it a kick start,  if not it's going back for an exchange.

the 3G vitas include GPS hardware. The wifi only models dont. So for a wifi model to determine your location is less accurate in the uk anyway I think

 

I am amazed with wifi it gets within a few miles of your to be honest.

My iphone and ipad find my location spot on and they only use wifi. its no different to the way the vita should find me on my wifi Vita. Im just annoyed that sony have said nothing officially about it. and im hoping that they get a fix out for it soon

Try it from laptop or mobile, it's pretty spot on.
