Loadstone -- General discussion pertaining to the Loadstone GPS program


About Loadstone
English (USA)

The primary purpose of the Loadstone mailing list is to facilitate general discussion relating to the Loadstone GPS navigation program.

It is hoped that this forum will allow potential users, existing users and developers to discuss various aspects of the program including: (but not limited to)

-Usage tips
-Usage testimonials
-Usage comments
-Program comments
-program feature requests
-program bugs
-Point of interest (Point) and map sharing

In addition, we feel it is important to compare, contrast and comment on general GPS issues including other GPS navigational products both for the mainstream and blind communities.

The idea here isn't to particularly preach or market Loadstone-GPS as we believe that all GPS navigational products have their place in the community and that different products help different users. If it emerges that Loadstone-GPS works for you, then great! If you need a more powerful/feature-rich product to meet your needs, then hopefully a list contributor can assist with information.

The goal is to help others (like ourselves) realise greater independence through GPS technology.
