programming/technical point of view rather than a functionality point of 

As it's been pointed out countless times on this list, everything 
about Symbian is  peculiar (the programming, the web site etc).  That 
means our methods of accomplishing certain tasks and functionality are not 
always as we would like.

Once you start thinking along the lines of what Loadstone can do rather 
than what it can't, I think you might be less confused.

The check point system works quite well.  It's almost as simple as 
thinking of check points as a subset of points from your database (or 
collection of databases) that have special status that can be used to flag 
important points of interest or form a link in a chain of a collection of 
check points as part of a route.

I'm sure the documentation describes it better!
