[Loadstone] Point announcement in Loadstone

The pedestrian mode makes sense when the application can read from a
map. The other day I wanted to walk to a restaurant  which is on a one
way street. In the normal (vehicle) mode, I would have had to walk at
least 2 kilometers. In the pedestrian mode, it doesn't matter if the
street is one way or not.

Of course, I still don't know how relevant this would be for Loadstone.
I can't install it on my Nokia N82 because of the signing problem.

There's no reason to alter the approach time since it also works on
This means that no matter what your speed you'll be notified when you're

approaching a point in a consistant way. I don't like other gps programs

that have a pedestrian and vehicle mode, it's just something else you'd
to remember to switch on and off and should really be able to be figured
by the program.
