Hi Mini-GPS users, can you tell me where you found the MiniGPS data
base? Recently I had to reformat my phone and couldn't find this
database and so lost all my sell references.

Thanks in advance,
Brett.

Hello.
You need all the fields in an imported file for things to work right.
That 
means for cells you need the mcc, mnc, areacode, and cellid. You
especially 
need the id and userid fields. These insure that every item in the
database 
is unique. The userid field is a crc16 calculated from the username you
used 
to register with the point share site. The id is a unique number, if 
generated by the phone it's a representation of the time in seconds when
the 
item was saved.
The program may import files with missing fields but it'll probably
cause 
problems of some kind.
At some point there may be a program written that you could run on the 
computer to generate loadstone files from other data sources. This is
pretty 
low on my todo list at the moment thoe. If anyone else out there wants
to 
write such a program that would be helpful.
