Since I have registered my Internet box mac address with Skyhook, Near works perfectly for me. But I hope it will soon be an official Sony answer to Near problems, because a lot of people I know still can't obtain their location data.

well i've been without near for 4 days now. it was working perfrectly since day 1 on my wifi vita (it worked at home & out & about using my xperia play as a wifi hotspot)
it says it gets my location but when sending says an error has occurred.
i reset settings which didnt work so am currently backing it up to my ps3 & am then going to restore the vita system.
PS is the number of players supposed to keep going up & up? as i used it mainly at home i thought it should just keep saying say 10 people, but each time i think its just adding them on again & again so am up to about 200!
EDIT system restore didnt work

Did a system restore and it didn't help, but 6 days after regsitering my MAC address with Skyhook it works perfectly.
I have done the same for when I visit my parents, but I can't help but think that this is a bit of a waste of time for people with a WiFi-only version (like mine) and in an area with poor Skyhook coverage.
The website says it should cover my area, but that clearly wasn't the case...

Any update from anyone on near not working. Workd fine at work, but when I gewt home, can not find my location. Lots of people seem to have this problem, but nobody actually answering what to do about it. Any omne heard from Sony on an official answer as to why Near does not work?
