Hi Josh,

Do some modification and it's going to take time cause you have to practically go through the points coordinates one by one.  I tried using Find and replace feature in Notepad as well as Words to make a quick search and replace but cannot work.

Google map will have lat long as 3.1234 and 101.1234.  Of course, this is just as an example.  Make sure to add 0's behind, after the decimal points to make 7 digits in all.  After adding 0's, use a find and replace command and remove the . (dot) in the numbers, so after both these process, the Lat and Long  should be as follows:

31234000 101.1234000

Import the .txt file back to Loadstone.  Note the result of import, if it says no points updated, then you will have to find a way to remove all those points which you have just added in.  

Simplest method is to export out all points into a text file, delete those which you have just added and then also delete off the default.dat file so that loadstone can create a new database.  After new database created and load, import back the txt file which you have exported followed by the new points which you have modified.
Hope that helps.

  Ok I got some points of interest around my area, and there are pretty many 300 or 400 points of interest. I uploaded the .txt file to the database explorer and all the points showed as being there or existing there. And then I went out in my backyard with my phone and gps receiver. I'm in a city and the nearest point of interest is across and maybe a block up the street. So I go outside, load my points of interest database. And loadstone says no points found, I do an area search, no points found. I even do a search for a point I know to exist, still no points found. The route generator works ok. The points are showingup as existing in the database explorer on the computer, but for some reason I just cannot get them to be detected in loadstone-gps , outside connected to satellites. and in exploration mode its as if there are n points in the database when I know there have to be. I even opened the compacted default and points of interest database in notepad to verify the existance of points. oh they do exist. So then why is Loadstone acting like they are not even there?
