Hello Hrvoje,

Off the top of my head I can't think of any users on the mailing list who 
live in Croatia but that's not to say their isn't one or more users who do 
since most Loadstone GPS users aren't subscribed to the mailing list.

What that means is that you'll likely need to create points yourself - 
either by marking points of interest while at various locations or by 
gathering points from other sources on the web.

In it's simplest form, Loadstone is great at helping you revisit or 
relocate a location you've already been to as once it's saved you can 
always find it again.  In fact, without a GPS receiver it can be 
semi-useful as well since you have the ability to label/save mobile masts 
(cell towers) to give you a rough idea on where you are.  Especially 
useful on trains etc.  (For North American's, cell towers in Europe are 
often just a few hundered metres apart as aposed to the up to 10 KM in 
North America)

Best regards,
