Am very satisfied with my PS Vita (WiFi only model), but I have a problem ...
If I go to the 'near'-app, the PS Vita has a totally wrong location to where I live. The location is 55 km (35 miles) wrong. Also at 'maps' is the same problem.
My router (Apple Time Capsule) is not the problem, because on my iPad 2 (also WiFi-only model), he givesback the correct location from where I live. (on same WiFi router)
also at a different WiFi network around here tested and "problem" remains the same ...
(sorry for my bad english)
When getting your location on the WiFi model, it can only go off the location of the IP address which is rarely ever accurate, sometimes it'll go to your nearest exchange, sometimes it won't even do that!
Otherwise, it may try and do it via your MAC address from the router, to see if it is in the skyhook database or something. But it'll never be 100% accurate for everyone on the WiFi model.
it doesnt even show a map just a cross hair with a raduis, dont worry near is cool , if you dont like it dont send your avatar ( in the near options)
mine picks me up nicely and ive found a few mates who i didnt even know had a vita
im using the airport express as well i think a software fix will sort this
