And what if I replace charracters with diacritics with normal characters 
- I'm from czech republic.
So I'll get file without any special characters, right?
When I replace č with c, for example.
Will that work? I found program kaboom, and it can convert to utf7.

>>     Hi,
>>     I finished an internal test few days earlier than i planned, and
>>     it's time to present the program to the community...
>>     This version is experimental, so rather dedicated not for a
>>     beginner computer or Loadstone or phone users...
>>     Mklsdb can be downloaded from:
>>     http://www.grzezlo.wuub.net/mklsdb.zip
>>      
>>     Below is a readme file, which explains the installation and usage
>>     of this tool:
>>
>>     Program: mklsdb (make Loadstone Database)
>>
>>     Author: Grzegorz Zlotowicz (grzezlo at wp.pl)
>>
>>     Version: 0.1 (experimental)
>>
>>     License: Freeware.
>>
>>     Author takes no responsibility for improper usage or work of this
>>     program.
>>
>>     Mklsdb is a program to generate a binary database for a Loadstone
>>     GPS.
>>
>>     It requires the external dbshell program, (version 1.1) available
>>     on the internet at:
>>
>>     http://garawaa.googlepages.com/
>>
>>     Installation
>>
>>     Unzip the dbshell program to some empty directory, for example
>>     c:\dbshell.
>>
>>     Then, unzip the mklsdb.zip in the same folder as dbshell.exe.
>>
>>     Make sure, that mklsdb.exe and emptyldb.dat are unzipped.
>>
>>     Usage:
>>
>>     1. Prepare a Loadstone import text file, downloadable for example
>>     from the Point Share Exchange website.
>>
>>     2. Convert this file into plain Ascii (no ansi, no utf-8, only
>>     7-bit ASCII)!
>>
>>     3. Run the mklsdb program from any directory, giving as an
>>     argument the import file name, for example:
>>
>>     c:\dbshell\mklsdb.exe c:\loadstone databases\some data.txt
>>
>>     4. The short beep will be heart, signing the start of the import.
>>
>>     In the same time in the current working directory a file named
>>     ls.db will be created.
>>
>>     Mklsdb produces no output messages, only error messages in case
>>     of troubles.
>>
>>     Be carefull not to press any keys as arrows, letters and so on,
>>     because this can spoil one or more lines which mklsdb sends to
>>     the dbshell program.
>>
>>     You can switch into an other window safely.
>>
>>     Look at the ls.db file during the process, the growth of the file
>>     size will give you an idea of the import progress.
>>
>>     When import will finish, the next short beep sound will be generated.
>>
>>     5. Note that the file size of the database is now few times
>>     smaller than during import - it's because of "compact database"
>>     operation.
>>
>>     6. Now manually rename the ls.db result file into some name more
>>     significant to you, and then copy it into the loadstone
>>     "databases" directory.
>>
>>     Any comments will be appreciated.
>>
