Hi list!

It is possible that I haven't comprehended correctly how this cell 
capabilities of Loadstone work, so if this is so, feel free to tell me.

Here in New Zealand, cell sites seem to be identified with their geogrphic 
location in English on my phone. In Loadstone, they appear to have strange 
names relative to some point in my database.

Yes, I am aware that I can label the cell by pressing 8 in navigation mode, 
but that assumes that I know for certain what cell site I am actually 
seeing. That is something I can't guarantee I know, for example around my 
house, where I get only one or two bars of network coverage, but according 
to the cell display on my phone, might see one of about five different cell 

Since this information is obviously available, why can't Loadstone pick it 
up when it sees the site and capture this info automatically? I think it 
would be more useful if it did that.
