Thanks, Monty, 

I completely agree that if we do start anything we should work closely with
your team in order to reinforce the quality of the work.

I am struggling with a new problem now. 

I have found that the Loadstone is announcing what it seems to think are
current locations but that are actually around 100m away from me. I have
checked the long. And lat. that have been input to the database and these
are definitely correct when matched with aerial photographs for the same

This suggests that the  problem must lie in the Loadstone program or in the
Holux GPS receiver.

Could there be any setting in the Loadstone program that would cause this
Have you any idea how I might check the calibration of the Holux receiver in
case that is the cause?

All the best,

improvements.  Let us know if you are doing any development so we can work
