Re: PS Vita Unable to find my location

I've had the problem since I got my vita, tried doing multiple factory resets, made sure parental settings allowed location data, restarted my router, checked to see if my area is within the skyhook range and it is (dark blue patch), no idea why it affects some people but not others

Re: PS Vita Unable to find my location

having the same problem here in north america. i have a wifi vita, near  & maps are unable to determine current location. same error code as mentioned above, seems the wifi model has some issues compared to it's 3g counterpart. hope sony will say something on the subject soon. my call to sony support was no help either, not happy at all.

Namely that the Wi-Fi variant doesn't have GPS but uses nearby Wi-Fi connections to map your location. It is probably that there is no mapped spots within range where you live. A solution to this is adding your location here and waiting for it to be added for partners to use, which takes about a week. If it still doesn't work then it must be something else.
