Hi Eric,

Isolate Checkpoint basically limits your surroundings in Navigation mode 
to the nearest checkpoint.  That is to say, when you press the joystick it 
will tell you where you are relative to the nearest checkpoint no matter 
what direction you are facing.

Lock point does much the same thing but it doesn't have to be locked 
on to your nearest checkpoint and you can still use the joystick to 
conduct normal intarigations while in Navigation mode.

Isolate Checkpoint has been in Loadstone for a long time and Lock 
point is relatively recent.

Since we added Lock Point I haven't touched the Isolate Checkpoint 

You can indeed search the list archives.  Just follow the link referenced 
at the end of every message posted to the list.
