[Loadstone] Extracting points from current database

  I do not consider this very versatile. Usually i would like to extract 
for example points inside given area or outside of given area. Also 
ability to extract points with some keyword would be useful, for example 
all points containing string 'test'. After selecting ability to export or 
delete a group of points will be useful.

  I do not quite understand the comment about receiver having accurate time 
only at first fix. AFAIK receiver calculates the time on satellite signals 
and the more satellites the more accurate time. Of course this  is not an 
issue  with bluetooth receivers, bt  delays will ruin any time accuracy. I 
just wondered why LS does not always sync the clock. This is not a big 
issue, there is always the manual sync option available.
