'Near' not working

[ Edited ]
481 Replies 14,147 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

I want to add the vita to the trusted wriless connections but it won't let me because it has no device name. Does anyone know how to give the vita a name?

Like people previously said restoring doesn't work. I followed the guide anyway just in case, but to no avail.
