Hi Monty!

Thanks for the suggestions.  Although I can't wait to use Loadstone with
a GPS some time, just playing around like this actually gives me a
clearer perspective on the relation of the towns and cities where I live
to one another.  I've always considered myself mildly geographically
challenged, and this certainly helps!

Thanks guys for a really good job!

Hello Laurent,

Try one of the two following suggestions and let us know how you get on.

Increase the "Max Search Radius" value located in the Settings menu. 
This value is measured in kilometres.  Try cranking it up to 20000 and 
then lower as necessary.  Although this should work, it will likely be 
very slow on a 6600.

Alternately, create a 2-line text file called "last_position".  On the 
first line enter the decimal latitude of your current location.  On the 
second line, enter the decimal longitude of your current position.
forget to include the minus sign for the values if needed).  Then copy 
"last_position" to the Loadstone directory on your phone.

If the above suggestions do not work, feel free to send me your default 
database file and I will take a look at it.

Best regards,
