I was trying to use smart ip to load latitude and longitude for proximity filter on view but It was returning nothing.

I found that $_SESSION did not hold the latitude and longitude for the persons ip like it was supposed to (not exactly sure why)

I fixed it by using smart_ip_session_get('smart_ip');

Proposed resolution

file: location.views.inc
line 585

if (module_exists('smart_ip')) {
  $smart_ip_session = smart_ip_session_get('smart_ip');
  if (isset($smart_ip_session['location']['latitude']) &&
    isset($smart_ip_session['location']['longitude'])) {
    $coordinates['latitude'] = (float) $smart_ip_session['location']['latitude'];
    $coordinates['longitude'] = (float) $smart_ip_session['location']['longitude'];
  }
}

@UziTech, thanks for this code. It helped me resolve the same issue using views 3.3. I'm not positive but I think this isn't working with views 3.7. What version are you using?
