Hi Steeven,
I didn't have a mail box in my drivay!
To get my mail I havefrom the garage go up to the street,
cross the street turn right by nord, walk about 300 meters and then turn 
right in another driway and get to the site!
So can you tell me what is the use of this soft ware?
That mean that this soft, is not good at all for a walk in a trail in the 
By example if a person byed a Gps name Tom pouce,
with a map, that will be much more  better than this soft! Is it that?
A Gps Tom Pouce just cost dollar 200.00 and I paided
550.00 dollars for the Nokia.
I didn't need the Nokia, I just buyed it because i saw the information on 
the loadstone programme.
So I'm very désappointted because I was searching for a soft  witch it can 
use in around my home, when I did'nt have my guide-dog wit me and by example 
if I was working in the feeld so if I get lost the soft can re oriented me.
The best think to youse is a braill compus
Also Iwant to use it when I was pass my snow blower and sometime I get lost 
in the driway because I have a very long driway of 66 meters long and when 
we are totaly blind, it take just a few meter to be lost!

GPS is not going to guide you to your mailbox from your Garage. Bad example 
to use. It makes it
sound like you shouldn't be out on your own if you need a GPS to go from 
your Garage to your

GPS will get you to within 10 meters about 33 feet radius of your location . 
This will very from
receiver to receiver. If you press number 2 it will give you a idea of the 
Radius of your
connection. The internal GPS receivers on the phone are not that good. So 
you may be 80 feet about
25 meters from the center of the circle of where you want to be. This will 
very but is about what my
N95 dash 3 reported. A lot of things can and do effect this range. So the 
number can go down and it
can go up.

Hi Everybody,
Since 2 months, I'm tryng the loadstone.
I never be able to get to a check point by using  the joystick.
Did some of you,were able to get to a check point by using the joystick?
Let see me setting.
I'm using nokia 95 with it's GPs.
On a traile, from my home outside, after I get 3 or 4 satelites, I make a
check mark by using "#" key.
I already tried sabing it by usingcurrent point if I'm not walking, and I
tried by using the function, from bigginning also.
Both of them, doe's change anything.
After all check Mark, corectly enter,  I'm export it to my PC and I'm,
export it to the  route planer tool, and after the rote planer caorrectly
made, I import the 2 files to my Nokia.
When I want to use it, I select check point and I selected this file.
I, setting the oadstone like this!
Use check point only,
Auto Announce off
Sound non
Vibrator off.

After I kept 3 or 4 sathélites I start to walk,
if i'm using joystick to know wher i'm, this is not the next check point
witch is announce, this the tirth or the forth check point that was tell me!
I like to tell you There is no hairpincurves.
Should somebody, tell me what I did wrong.
Also, in the tool route planer,
I put by example
Garage for the first point
and Mail
for the last point.
With the button add,
I add the other check points
from the garage, up to the mail check point.
Also, in my return I'm using the other file reverse  routecreated by the
route planner.
When I question the the loadstone,  it telle me  the next check points witch
are in front but instead telling me forword the name of the point at xx
meter, it tell me in french
"rrière", This mean behind me not front of me.
How come every thing are said
to me all in the wrong way?
I'm sure that I'm using the right file.
Also, something that I didn't understand, it is that
event if i'm exactly on a check point and if I question the loadstone, it
didn't tell me exactly where I'm but telleng me 14 meter from xx.
