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.
Took my little girl to school and Near worked fine even showed other noobs within a ten mile radius,i get back home half a mile away and it says im back in Nelson south Wales and I've traveled over 300 miles when i haven't done a mile,
Come on Sony help us out
Could it be that when you are out and about it is using 3G (fine) and when you are home it is using WiFi (coarse) location locking.
Thus when you are home it is using your ISP server address as its location??
For this to be possible im assuming you have 3G model and also assuming I know what I am talking about :Stupid:
Anyways, Near doesn't work for me, WiFi only.
I have the "An error has occured" (no error code number) problem after pressing the Near update button.
I really don't want to reset and format my system.
My question is...
Surely the fix for this problem is for Sony to add a button to the Near settings menu that resets the data for this app?
Regards, Matt :Thumbs:
As I reported on another thread, I managed to fix my 'error occurred' issue with near. Would like to know if I just go lucky or if it actually fixes it for others as well.
I really didn't fancy resetting to factory defaults my Vita and so did the following, which happened to work for me:
Power off Vita
Remove the Memory Card & Game card (was playing Uncharted)
Update Near (unsure if this is actually necessary, I'd just done it to see if the error was still there)
Power Off Vita.
Re-insert Memory Card.
Near was then fully functional again. Curious to see if anyone else manages to fix their problem following this procedure.
i tried that method and it didn't work for me but i am in Germany.
Maybe it depends on the region.
Still, very annoying that it was only working for like a week in the beginning and after that, it stopped working.
