I thought I would pass this along its a suggestion and comment. 

No I'm really not sure.  I have marked a bunch of points in my town and 
uploaded them to the pointshare.  I guess as more of us start using 
loadstone there will be more than street names in the database.  I have 
the mobile geo points in sql but I need to write something to convert 
the mobile geo sql format to the loadstone csv format.  It would be a 
simple read a line of text write a line of text program so I think I 
could do it.  I will be happy to send you a copy if I ever get it 
working.  The problem with loadstone is that it seems the larger the 
database the slower the program runs so adding too many points can 
really slow the phone to a crawl.  Also if you have a bunch of points in 
your database it becomes harder to navigate by street. if you are using 
the joy stick in nav mode.

I would like to see a feature added that would allow you to specify the 
priority of a point so that I could have intersections at one priority 
and businesses at another.  Then I could decide at runtime if I wanted 
to see all points or just intersections or businesses.  My idea would 
include a min_priority and max_priority setting that would determine 
what points are shown in navigation mode.  The problem is I think it 
would require a change in the database format and a bunch of work on the 
part of the loadstone developers.
