    What fields are you importing? Do you have the Lookup mapping info during import? box checked? – Paul-Tahoe Jan 21 '16 at 1:47

    It would help if you gave an example of the data you are importing for that field. Geo code 1 is expecting a coordinate eg 25.0421407 – petednz - fuzion Jan 21 '16 at 1:51

It seems to mean you are trying to import the latitude (or longitude, never remember) of your contact. Do you really have a column that contains that?

Sometimes, the suggestion to map your columns in the csv file and the fields in civi aren't correct, check that you aren't trying to import a completely unrelated "code" column into that "geo code +" field.

Your easiest bet to see what's the expected format of each of the fields is to export a few contacts from civi and include these fields, so you can see how you need to format them on your own file.
