Hi there,

I'm a new entry, so forgive me if my question may somehow seam simple. I
have acquired a cellular-line satellite receiver and connected it to a nokia
6600. The trouble is that loadstone keeps saying "no signal". Is this
possible? Do I have to make some adjustments? Please help.

Regards James.

P.S Gabriel if you need any help in translation from English to Italian I
offer you my help. Besides I am in Italy so get in touch.

Hi,

I am in Ireland and I got one in Britain, but I doubt if that would help you
as we use the EGNOS system whereas you use WAAS.

Be sure to get the RBT-2010 and not the RBT-2001. the battery life is
dramatically better.

Hi all.
I'm populating my own, Italian, databases signing in relway station and 
so on... as usual it happened I did some mistake and I wish to adjust 
entries or improve their readability. I'd like to do this job when I'm 
at home, sitted infront of my computer and maybe using a confortable 
NotePad...

So, this last weekend I've been around and I mapped some places. Once I 
went back at home I exported all datas from LoadStone and I've opened 
the created file with notepad directly from the phone memory.

At this point I have a couple of questions.

In the text file which is comes out from the exporting process I found 
several entries I thought to be deleted days ago. Why they are still 
there?
And the other question is, may I edit an entry name for example, without 
changing anything else than the name of the place, save the file and 
reimport it in Loadstone to fix that mistake?
The importing process ricognizes the same point from the name or from 
the geographical coordinates?
And, what will happen if I import a database which contains a point just 
3 meters far from another point already mapped? Does loadstone will 
include it the same?

Thanks.

Gabriel.

Hello all LS supporters and fan.
As you know, many new generation phones could be managed even via cable 
or bluetooth directly from the computer station. It is confortable to 
copy, cut, paste or edit file inside your mobile at the same way like 
you do in your hard drive, or in a flash pen.
Well, I could do that on my Nokia N70 for instance, and it's pritty good 
when I have to upload mp3 books before leaving for some days... But the 
PcSuite feature doesn't allow me to see all my phone directories or 
folders, some of them are hiden.
One of these hiden folder is System, like all its subfolders and it's 
exactly in system\apps\loadstone that it could be usuful for us to go in 
order to manage easyer our software! LOL.
Yeah, We have the powerful FExplorer which doesn't care about the hiden 
folders, but I think It will be a good idea to improve LS adding a 
feature like: Specify your working directory.
So, import/export could stay as a default but every user could decide to 
choose something different replacing it, for example, in a not hiden 
folder.
Moreover, if you have installed LS in the phone memory and the free 
space there start to seriously decrease, you may decide to set the 
working directory in the MMC moving there all your datas, without moving 
the whole loadstone, why not?

What do you think about this?

Thanks for reading.

Gabriel.

That's normal and because if you upload to PointShare, we
need to know that you deleted the points so that others can
get the fact that they are deleted.  The deleted status is
in the priority field and you can verify that if priority
is 4.

Yes, LoadStone recognizes a point by its id/userid combo so
just don't change the IDs and it'll do what it should.

3 meters or 300 km it makes no difference to Loadstone. 
Though the usefulness of such a point considering GPS
accuracy is a question, LoadStone will hapily accept it.

Thanks for your suggestion. We've been thinking of implementing this and 
it'll probably be put in at some point. I think the best way to do this will

be to have another section in the settings, maybe called paths, that would 
allow the user to change all the directories used by loadstone. This will 
take a bit of doing but would be a good thing in the end.

Hi Gabriel,

I second your motion. For Windows users the problem with the Bluetooth 
stack is a hassle, both 2000 and XP don't handle Bluetooth too well. The 
cable connection would be the best solution, were it not that the system 
folder doesn't show up in the explorer view. An option would bbe to have 
the choice to export to the E:// drive of the phone. Also being able to 
export checkpoints files would be an advantage. In short, file management 
in Loadstone-GPS can be improved, and I'm sure Shawn agrees.

Rob
