'Near' not working

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

ok, now ive tried with internet alone and then 3G alone.
i went outside and started "Near" and it worked =) found one other player in my zone, i live in Norway.
tested the Maps app also and it worked =) im using maps now while typing this inside :D

 Near wont let me update more than once every hour it told me outside, when i went inside again it didnt even tell me that.... just  "cant find your location data" so i guess "Near" will only work while you are outside, but maps seems to work fine inside :S

hope this fixes it for the rest of you as well, but would be nice to get "Near" to work inside.

I've given up with it...every time I've tried over my 3G connection I get the same error.

I'll wait till I get off work and try again whilst outside to see if that makes a difference...but this is kind of stupid...my iPhone can obtain my location no matter where I am...but the PSVita, what you got to be outside for it to work? How is that possible?
