Hi Kevin,

Is your GPS receiver successfuly communicating with Loadstone with a 
signal when you attempt to save?  The fact you can't press the 
Hash/NumberSign key suggests that you don't have a signal.  Another way to 
verify this is when you fill in your point information in the "enter 
point" form  and press SoftKey1 (for options) you should get:

Save using current
Save from commencement

If you don't get these two choices then you may not be connected and you 
certainly don't have a signal.  This would mean your point of interest is 
being saved with out longitude/latitude coordinates and therefore would 
not show up potentially.

Is this the case or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Best regards,
