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).

Several days after regestering my MAC address on Skyhook, and after a PS Vita restore, It still doesn't work. Will try in a few days again to see.
Sony is really dropping the ball here.

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.

I've had problems with Near/Maps since the 15th. Updated Skyhook multiple times with multiple local locations and now maps seems to work fine with my wifi, and I also went ahead and tagged my mobile hotspot to the same location, which also works.
Now my problem is Near. At some point it gathered some location info, but when it tries to use it, gives back an error. Now that my wifi can be located, Near still can't find me, uses the old data and gives me an error. I'm wary about restoring it, does it just restore it to the way it was when I first turned it on? Do you think this will fix it? Anything I should be worried about happening?
Also what is with the blue circle that fills up around the Near compass thing you press? It's about 3/4 the way around now...
