[Loadstone] Point announcement in Loadstone

Hello all,

I recently began creating points of interest around my home and office for 
experimental purposes, and have a few questions in this regard:

1. Although the Autoannounce option is active, check points are not always 
automatically announced by Loadstone. Also, the phone does not automatically 
beep on nearing a check point. Should any other option be activated in order 
for this feature to work?

2. Can Loadstone be configured to interrupt calls in order to announce the 
arrival of a check point? This feature would be useful when travelling.

3. While in navigation mode, can Loadstone be configured to display only 
those check points that are ahead? With my current settings I can see check 
points that are some 20 kilometers in the opposite direction. This is of no 
practical use.

4. Can Loadstone be switched between pedestrian mode and vehicle mode?

5. Check point announcements are sometimes erratic. While some points are 
announced 30 meters in advance, others are announced when I am just 8 meters 
away from them. Can this be made to work in a more uniform manner?

Many thanks for your responses.
