[Loadstone] Checking all points

Hi all!

Then you can also turn on auto announce and it will happily talk away as you walk or ride. Be sure to carry your phone's charger along because Bluetooth connections will drain a battery quickly. I want a longer life battery, but apparently there isn't one. I've learned to use Loadstone sparingly if I want my battery to last a day. The receiver battery life is great by comparison.

  Hi David,

  One way to do this is to check every point in your database manually, and 
  then save the checkpoints in a new file you call "default".
  You can save a file of checkpoints by going to the file/checkpoints/save 
  checkpoints menu.
  Now, when you start Loadstone again, the checkpoints file with name 
  "default" will automatically be loaded, so every point in your database will 
  be announced as you approach it.

  I know this can be a lot of work if your database is large, but I wouldn't 
  know an easier way.

  With kind regards,
