[Loadstone] How to download and import map data

The steps all seem to be what I am doing, but I am getting a Loadstone crash at the point that I attempt to import the file.  Would it make any difference if I do a ctrl - a at the window with the data, then ctrl - c to copy the data, paste the data into a notepad file and save it to a text file which then gets sent to the phone for importing.

How big a file will Loadstone be able to take?  I am wondering whether the problem is that the file is too large?

: Hello David,
: You are exporting correctly and there should be plenty of
: points in that area, the U.S. judging by your coordinates. 
: Basically, you would input those coordinates, pick your
: radius and right chick submit, choose save as and save it
: as a text file.  Copy that file over to the phone, startup
: Loadstone, press soft key 1 to get the options menu. 
: Select file and import database and import the file you
: copied over.  The resultant import may take some time but
: once done, you should have the tiger points for your area.
: Best,
: Shane
