As the lastposition file has the same format like the checkpoint list file, you can also do so:
If your points of interest for lastposition exist in your database, create a checkpoint list just with one point of interest.
Maybe, you can call the checkpoint list Last_position.
After this, create a folder lastpositionx and copy the file to it.
Then, you can do so with other candidates for lastposition.
When you have sseveral folders lastpositionx, lastpositiony and so, you have a pool of last_position files where you can copy the appropriate file from.
The advantage of this is, you do not have do use your pc but can do all within Fexplorer.

Someone may chime in with an easier method, but what I do is the following:
1. Using F Explorer copy the last_position file to a folder accessible to the Nokia browser (E.G. "my music").
2.  Using Windows Explorer I move it to a folder on my hard drive.
3. I press f2 and add the file extension .txt to "last_position".
4. Edit the file using NotePad (well I actually use NoteTab pro but that is a distinction without a difference).
5. Optionally save files as "last_position_home" or "last_position_downTown, etc.
6. copy them back to the phone.
7. Using FExplorer I copy the version of last_position I want into the system/apps/loadstone folder.
8. Delete the last_position file.
9. Rename last_position_PlaceIWannaVertuallyExplore to "last_position".

HTH, and I would be interested there is a quicker way -- in my experience it is much easier to edit files on the pc since Talks often seems to be one character off when reporting my cursor position.

Subject: [Loadstone] Last Position Question

I am trying to edit the last position file to make Loadstone think I am
somewhere else.  How do I save the file in a format Loadstone can use?  I
can get notepad to save it as a text file.  This does not seem to replace
Loadstone's current last position file.
