As of the 7.1 release, we have decided to remove Sync Connector's usage and dependency on the IP Geocoder module.
This will result in the following loss of functionality: the devices list will show the IP address for "Location" instead of a region/country.
We are removing this dependency because the IP Geocoder module is not maintained. It's currently an "MP Lab App" for 7.0, which means it's not supported and should never have been bundled with the Sync Connector in the first place.
We can evaluate re-adding this functionality in the future, preferably by leveraging a third party IP to geolocation service.
