In this tutorial i am going to show you how to get current location in laravel 6. Sometimes, we may require to get user location. In this tutorial i am going to show you how we can track user ip address and can find user location information from ip address.

For getting user location information i will use stevebauman/location package. Using this package you can get every information of user like country name, region name, state name longitude, latitude, zip code, iso code, postal code etc.


So let's start. First we have to install stevebauman/location package. So install it by running the following command.

Step 1 : Install package

composer require stevebauman/location


Step 2 : Configure Config file

After installing package we have to setup config file. So open config/app.php file and add service provider and alias.


'providers' => [




'aliases' => [


	'Location' => 'Stevebauman\Location\Facades\Location',



Step 3 : Publish Optional Vendor

we have to also make public configuration file by following command, after run this command you will find config/location.php file. So run bellow command:

php artisan vendor:publish


Step 4 : Create Route 

Now everything done. We are ready to get user location information in laravel. So create a route like below and check that by visiting following url.

Route::get('details', function () {

	$ip = '';
    $data = \Location::get($ip);


Now if you visit the above declared routeurl and you will get the below output You should see the following output.


Now if you need the country name ? just print like below

Route::get('details', function () {

	$ip = '';
    $data = \Location::get($ip);



Then you will get only user country name.


Now you have to make it dynamic by replacing static ip address. Just use laravel ip helper function to get it. Have a look


or \Request::ip();


Then you will get user ip adress. Hope this laravel gps tracking tutorial will help you.
