Hi Jon,

Please find the sample code below and tweak it as per your requirement.

<aura:component controller="user_current_location" implements="force:lightningQuickAction,force:hasRecordId" access="global">
<aura:attribute name="visit" type="Visit__c"/>
  <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}" /> 
   <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.getLocation}" />
    <div class="slds-page-header" role="banner">
    <h1 class="slds-page-heading--label">Check-In Update</h1>
    <lightning:input type="text" name="id" aura:id="id" label="Name" value="{!v.visit.Name}" ></lightning:input>
    <lightning:input type="number" name="latitude" aura:id="latitude" label="Check-In Latitude" value="{!v.visit.Check_in_GeoLocation__latitude__s}" ></lightning:input>
    <lightning:input type="text" name="longitude" aura:id="longitude" label="Check-In Longitude" value="{!v.text}"></lightning:input>
    <lightning:input type="date" name="checkindate" aura:id="checkindate" label=" {!v.visit.Check_in_Date_Time__c}" ></lightning:input>
  doInit : function(component, event, helper) {
         var action = component.get("c.getVisit");   
         action.setParams({"visitId" : component.get("v.recordId")});
         action.setCallback(this, function(response) {
         component.set("v.visit", response.getReturnValue());


   getLocation: function(component, event, helper){
   if (navigator.geolocation) {
       navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function(position) {
           var lat = position.coords.latitude;
           var lon = position.coords.longitude;
 //           alert(lat);
 //           alert(lon);
            component.set("v.lat", lat ) ;
public with sharing class user_current_location {
    public static Visit__c getVisit(Id visitId){

        return [SELECT Name, Id, Check_in_GeoLocation__latitude__s, Check_in_GeoLocation__longitude__s, Check_in_Date_Time__c FROM Visit__c
        WHERE Id = :visitId ];
Hope this helps.
