$config = $this->config->config['geolocation'];

$this->geolocation->initialize($config);
$this->geolocation->set_ip_address($ip); // IP to locate
// $this->geolocation->set_format('json');
// OR you can change the format within `config/geolocation.php` config file
$country = $this->geolocation->get_country();
var_dump($country);

// For more precision
$city = $this->geolocation->get_city();
if($city === FALSE)
    var_dump($this->geolocation->get_error());
else
    var_dump($city);
