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?
Solved! Go to solution
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.
just after i use near for a few hours with 3G
now it's give me a new massaga said " Could not obtain data for your location NEAR will use previously location data sending..." " There has been an error "
the most thinks i was so exciting about is near
wooooow awesone -.- thanks sony i'm really happy :(
Well this morning my maps are working and it finds my location perfectly, but in Near it obtains the data but cant send it !
A step in the right direction I guess
I registered my skyhook details last Thursday or Friday so they seem to have done their bit
Right I have got it working!!
I hope this helps someone!
When I first got my vita it wouldn't find any location data on any apps like near, maps, or photo. I was annoyed and did some googling, found out about skyhook and added my routers Mac address. This morning it found my location.. And decided to restore the vita.
As soon as I did that it worked straight away.
My advice it to register on skyhook, wait till your maps work and find your location, and then restore your system.
Just to keep you informed the issues with the Near app are still been looked into. I will update this thread once I have more info.
Mine is working today finally. I registered for Skyhook when I first heard about that as a potential fix and I think it worked, it took a few days to filter through.
How will skyhook help when Im at different ends of the UK all week.
My thoughts exactly.
Could get some very long leads for your router :Lol:
Having the same problem as most of the people in this thread. I only have the WiFi version and I can't get Near, or Maps, or even Photos and Foursquare to work. Kept telling me that the "location data could not be obtained". I've tried everything I could think of and I had tried connecting from both my workplace and at home. I even tried walking around outside of our house to see if it would work, but it didn't.
I've been checking the forums and searching through google to see if there is already an actual, universal working fix for this but, at the moment, na-da.
I hope Sony fixes this problem soon since this is one of the selling point of the Vita (for me, at least).
I would recommend doing a restore, mine was saying that and it worked after i did one
@ pin pin ire
I tried a few different locations today. This is what I got.
Mums house. 4 miles away, in the country side. Near works fine. Maps works fine.
Brothers house. Less than 1 mile from me, in town. Near works fine. Maps doesn't work.
My house, also within town. Near works sometimes after 5 goes standing outside the house. Maps doesn't work.
My house has the best internet connection out of the 3 to. I'm not sure if it's the Home Hub 3 causing issue. Or that the app is random.
