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.

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.
"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
"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
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
