Default Location no longer working off WiFi?

I've just found another after ICS to JB upgrade issue.

I'm not getting a WiFi location on Google maps.

It's something that had initially really impressed me about the phone, I hit Google maps when I first had it and it went almost straight to my exact location in seconds, even with GPS off. So long as WiFi was on.

Since the upgrade it can't find my location via WiFi. I don't even get a giant blue circle saying I might be in this area. The blue arrowhead just flickers or it's a grey dot or not there at all.

My phone can see 7 WiFi networks in the area, the same ones that have been active fore quite some time.

Under Settings> Location> Use wireless networks is checked.
