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.
I got a wifi Vita 8th June 2012, "near" shows people around me but says I live in a street in Atherstone when i live on the outskirts of Atherstone in Nuneaton, how do i find this skyhook thing,
Also I have a sky broadband hub and if I go to the end of our street I can't get a connection to the network, Help Please!
As far as your location is concerned that is to do with skyhook as there location technology is built in to the system, i contacted them by email, they asked for some info and a screenshot of my wifi and surrounding wifi points on INSSider (its a free program that shows wifi points your MAC code and other stuff) they contacted me to say thanks to the screenshot I sent they know the problem that places me in the next street and after the next system update it should have my location.
If I were you i'd send them a mail describing your problem and give them the info they ask for.
My issue is the exact same as yours!
Hopefully they get this sorted soon as i want to see what Near is actually like lol :Stupid:
Well I had a mail 2 days ago saying that they had updated and it should work, but i'm still located in the next street.
i thinki know what the problem is , you have to go to your router teeings in browser by typing in the ip address in a web browser then from there go to sttings if there is a option called ip address filter turn it off. that what worked for me anyway, im not sure bout normal home routers but thi worked for my metoer wifi hotspot
Well... I'm from Mexico and had the same problem. I did follow the instructions on skyhook for PS Vita users and worked almost instantly.
Personally I don't think that is the best solution because it is like I request a P2P connection, and is supposed that WiFi should work anywhere, not only at specific point.
aaaanywho' :) ... is working now from home.
Have a good one!
Any chance of a official update? Near still doesn't work.:Ill:
have you read this...
...and done this..
i did and it worked fine....
Near is working perfectly for me now, it has my exact adress, no more problems here.
Bought my psvita bundle Assassin's Creed Liberation in Québec, Canada for me and my son and in both systems, neither Near nor Maps works :Shame:
Hope Sony is going to find a solution soon. :Mad:
I try with SkyHookWireless.com but I saw my area covered
I live in United Arab Emirates not only me also all who live in UAE
