[Loadstone] Question about a route planner

The RoutePlanner makes a checklist, not a database. You should place it in 
the 'checklist' folder of LS and load this checklist when you need it. If 
you plan to use it both ways you should the 'reverse route' button in the 
tool and generate and download this checklist too. Give the two files names 
that mention the direction. To walk back you will have to load the reversed 

 From the tools page:

"This tool lets you create a file with a list of checkpoints with 
directional commands added to the comment field of each point. You provide 
a startpoint
and destination and select the points inbetween that connect these two 
points. With this checkpoint file loaded this results in the announcement 
of the
pointname that you are approaching, followed by a 'turn left, go straight 
or turn right message. Also the clockface direction is announced. With verbose
mode checked, a truncated part of the name of the next point and the 
distance to that point is also announced. The truncation is due to the 
limited size
of the comment field (75 characters). This is a useful tool when practicing 
a new route, or to provide visitors with a database of points and a checklist
file that serves as route to your house. You can reverse the route and save 
both the 'to' and 'from' routes under different names. Beam the route files
to the phone and place them in the 'loadstone/checkpoints' directory."
