Geolocation field is currently not supported in the new Data Import Wizard since when importing this field using Data Import Wizard the field is recognized as a single field instead of showing separate mappings for Latitude and Longitude values.
1) Go to Setup | Administration Setup | Data Management | Data Import Wizard
2) Click Launch Wizard
3) Select Leads
4) Add New Records
5) Leave default settings
6) Make sure that you have a geolocation field in your spreadsheet having combined values for Latitude and Longitude and map it accordingly.
7) Click Next and Start Import
The Import will fail with the error message
INVALID_FIELD_FOR_INSERT_UPDATE:Unable to create/update fields: Geo_Field__c. Please check the security settings of this field and verify that it is read/write for your profile or permission set.:Geo_Field__c --
where Geo_Field__c is the custom Geolocation field on the object.
You can use the legacy wizard by navigating to below url
Setup -> Data Import Wizard
The top right has a link to all the legacy importers:
Legacy Data Import Tools : https://naX.salesforce.com/ui/setup/imp/LegacyImportersWelcomePage
Here, you can choose any of the following:
Go to the old Import Tool for Accounts/Contacts
Go to the old Import Tool for Leads
Go to the old Import Tool for Custom Objects
You can use API tools such as Apex Data Loader.
