3) I get a small blue bar appear on the Near button, then it vanishes after a refresh. What is the bar and what does it mean. I thought it might be game good related but nothing ever drops.
I believe it fills up as you're collecting more location data. Successful synchronisation with server makes it disappear.
Still no reply from Sony in relation to problems with synchronisation. The error on it's own isn't really as annoying as lack of Sony's official statement regarding it.
Same with NP-2244-2 on PS Store. Apparently they can afford losing loads of money.

Took my WiFi-only Vita to work today and left it in power save with no wireless connection.
When I got it home it said I had travelled 14 miles (equivalent to a one way trip to work) and had picked up a location directly opposite where I work.
I'm really confused now because my phone doesn't pick up the work wireless, so I doubt the Vita would get a signal from someone across the road. All I can guess is that it grabs the info as I'm pulling out of the car park.
Still don't have much of an idea how it all works though, but at least it is working!

i did a reset and now near is able to upload my location data.
but now the map isnt showing my psn avatar in the centre just a rectangle and even though it says 33 are playing nearby no one shows up on the map. (I am in south london)

I wonder if someone of Sony's team is really working on that point, we still have nothing like a beginning of official answer.
The closest thing to an offical response I can find is from RabidWalker on of the Mods. On his Twitter feed a couple of days ago where he said "This is being looked at currently, so we will update when there is information on a fix" in response to someone asking about Near.

The problem is that someone came on this thread to say we had to wait for news... and it was on February 22nd ! Someone came back but no more answer. A member already told it but the kind of response people are waiting for is something like an announce somewhere else than in confidential tweets. Like "Hey guys, we DO have problems with Near, sorry for the inconveniance". If only there had been a public article with the advices given in this thread (like registering mac address on Skyhook), so that everybody could see them.
PS : I hope I don't seem aggressive, it's not my intention, I try to express as well as I can (I am French).

I haven't posted in a while because since my last post I have been sending in a request to skyhook daily and adjusting the lon and lat ever so slightly. ( Cause apparently it covers a 10m radius)
Today I contacted skyhook direct, on their support contact e-mail.
Maybe if more of you guys pester them, they will decide to pull finger?
