I'm not sure how you'd list the points in reverse order, how long would this 
list be? The limitations of the database engine also would make this process 
very time consuming on a large database.
Loadstone emulating a gps receiver just isn't going to happen. I don't see 
any practical use for this feature. Not to mention the technical problems of 
doing this, what exactly would the program send? And how often would this 
ever be used? Whatever the usage case for this would be it's probably better 
off being done using a pc.
