Hi, el patron from PrestaShop forum.

One must be very careful when enabling native PS geo localizationi.  When the IP can not be resolved, then they visitor will either not be able to shop but see catalog or not see catalog at all.  Because the geolitecity.dat file has 85% good hit rate, this could in effect reduce sales by 15%.
