How large a data base is it practical to import into Loadstone?  I am not 
asking in terms of a mile radius.  I am asking in terms of file size.

I am curious because I believe Loadstone could work for some long distance 
hiking ideas I have in mind.  Given the distances involved, I would need 
data bases considerably larger than sizes recommended on the point share 
exchange.  They might need to cover hundreds of miles.  Alternatively, I 
could store data bases on some form of media and upload them as the need 
arises.  I believe I can learn to adapt data files from other sources and 
could definitely test the resulting data before attempting any such hikes. 
This idea is in the early research stage at this time.

How large a memory card is it possible to get for a Nokea 6680?  What 
sacrifices does one make in terms of performance by increasing available 

I currently have a60 mb card.  Performance is fine but that is nowhere near 
enough for the types of data bases I would need to import to attempt such a 

Thank You,
