[Loadstone] info on LoadStone

Also another crucial differences between the two is that way finder needs 
internet connection besides your GPS. So if you do not have GPRS or WIFI 
activated in your phone, it will not work. Whereas LS only requires the GPS 
connection.

Dear Chip,

You canÄt compare a screwer with pen. These are two different tools and you
will need both of them. Wayfinder just works if a map was made. With
Loadstone you haven't got this kind of maps, but the advantage is you can
make your own points of interest very easyli.
As I read in your questions, I think you haven't read the whole manuals of
loadstone. The philosophie between loadstone and wayfinder is different. I
would recomend, to use both of them.

best regards
thomas
