Hi all,

As the subject line says. A few days a go, I sought clarification from the 
list regarding the LS behaviour in point announcement other than streets. I 
found a way which seems to be working better at least for the moment. I 
selected a street point downloaded from the point share web page and then 
clicked on "update". I noticed that the accuracy and the satalite fields 
containing 0 values. I didn't change those values, but just wanted to see 
what was there. Then I selected some of those points that I added and then 
clicked on "update". By default those two fields contained some numbers 
other than 0. For example, Accuracy is marked with 1 and the number of 
satalites being received at the time of a particular point being entered in 
to the databases. I changed both of them to 0 and believe it or not, I 
experience a considerable improvement in Accuracy. But what I thought though 
was that we were not supposed to change the number of satalites and if my 
memory is correct, that's what the mannual states. Then I am wondering how 
is this possible. Would like to hear some thoughts on this from the 

Thank you.
