PS: I have just found that it's the same with Google Maps in Safari. I must have some problem with my location services…

Your Mac doesn't have a GPS, so the only way it can determine its location is if you have wifi turned on and are within range of at least one wifi router whose physical location is known. If you are connecting to the internet via Ethernet, or if you are on a wifi network whose location isn't known, location services won't be able to find you.

and thank you for your reply!
My iOS devices' work location services work OK via WLAN with 3G turned off, one even without a SIM card. So, connected to the same network, the same thing works that doesn't on my MbP.

It doesn't make a difference that you have 3G turned off... any iOS device with 3G has a GPS that is completely independent of the 3G services, and will use that GPS for location.

You're right without any doubt.
Unfortunately I have just tried my old MacBook in the same network – location services work fine.
So, this must be some issue with my MBP.
