thanks very much, 

And if you could modify the command line loadstone database importer for the computer that would be great so the mklsdb program can read UTF8 files. I'd rather import and create compact databases on the computer due to the faster processor and full windows OS. Importing even a 6mb file on my relatively modern nokia e51 takes a long time. I'd rather do the importing and database creation on the computer then just paste it into the database folder on the phone.

  Hi, reading your email i noticed that in fact there is an error in groute 
  causing it to remove dashes, it wasn't intentional because I know that 
  coordinates can have negative values, it's simply the matter of handling 
  strings which needs to be corrected.
  Thanks for detailed analysis and sorry for the inconvenience, I'll try to 
  fix it as soon i'll be able, and i'll notice the loadstone list.
  Greetings, Greg.

  Hi Greggor,

  Ok first I made a points of interest database. And then I opened it in 
  notepad in windows xp the notepad text editor. And then I put the dashes in, 
  just like this.

  table,point
  name,latitude,longitude,accuracy,satellites,priority,userid,id
  "Kramer s Peanut Bar",403348780,-759308780,1,0,0,4,1257950315
  "Reading Public Library",403335950,-759280180,1,0,0,4,1257950316
  "Canal Street Pub Restaurant",403257410,-759285000,1,0,0,4,1257950317
  "Ugly Oyster Drafthaus",403345150,-759276460,1,0,0,4,1257950318
  "Speckled Hen Cottage Pub",403342860,-759298290,1,0,0,4,1257950319
  "Legacy Brewing",403257410,-759285000,1,0,0,4,1257950320
  "Central Catholic High School",403344600,-759110510,1,0,0,4,1257950321
  "Reading Area Community College",403344920,-759344470,1,0,0,4,1257950322
  "Edgemont Terrace Apartments",403347020,-759084630,1,0,0,4,1257950323
  "Hawthorne",403321870,-759089590,1,0,0,4,1257950324


  And now it works! But until you make the changes, and groute enters in the 
  longitude and latitude correctly, people on the loadstone list, it is 
  necessary to note carefully the longitude and latitude and make sure it is 
  correct, that includes the dashes! Once I enter the dashes the database 
  works perfectly! Without the dashes, it does not work at all. there may be 
  some cases or parts of the world where dashes are not needed. so advise it 
  when groute generates the output file for the database, it enters longitude 
  and latitude exactly as you see it on screen including dashes. now remember 
  no decimal points. Ok... just do like I showed you and groute will work 
  fine.
