I think you're correct. It takes some time to work it out. I remember that when I first started I had to try the steps more than once before I got it right. Now it's been so long that I could not be able to give you any basic or step-by-step. I have not needed to create a database nor checkpoints for about a year.

Sorry I can't help you more, but I feel I should encourage you to continue reading and attempting.

Subject: [Bulk] Re: [Loadstone] To all new users.

extreme thanks for bothering yourself that much for me.
ok, i've entered the lattatude and longitude for jaipur as provided,
but still could not understand how to creat my own check points and
then to approach them acordingly.
in fact, a lot of hardwork has been done on manual, but unfortunately
i still found it a bit hard in understanding.
my tiedy schedule may be one reason of this as i don't get that much
time with my PC these days, but still they could have been made more
explainotary in my view.
what so ever, producing this software is indeed a great endeavour
performed already, so do not expect that much as well.
what so ever, i will be glad if some one describes me the key feature
and their correct procedure to use.
yeh, i will move forward to manual once again as soon as i get a bit
schedule timeout.
waiting for very basic step-by-step,
prateek agarwal.
