[Loadstone] How do I set an end point when traveling?

Thanks Ralph,

I did try unchecking the point and then navigating to my home point in exploration mode which is one of my check points but it wouldn't stick. There was no warning when I exited Loadstone.

Of course I didn't get any information about my surroundings while moving along, didn't have maps to cover such a large area but it was interesting to monitor direction and speed and distance and altitude. We pass near the highest point in Ontario on the drive.

Thanks, I don't know when I'll get the next chance to try this again.

Dale Leavens.

  Hi Dale,


  Sounds like the intersection of 3rd and 12th got checked somehow.  Use the function key and "find" command to display this point on our screen.  Go into "options" again and under "last point", you will find  a toggle called "check" or "uncheck".  Use this to take focus off this intersection.  When you exit Loadstone, it will most likely tell you that  checkpoints have been modified and will ask you if you want to save changes.  Save the changes, otherwise this point wil likely reappear again as the focus the next time you turn Loadstone on.


  I did the same thing coming home fro Winnipeg last night.  In Navigation mode (I think), I was able to monitor each crossroad as I passed it by pressing the scroll up key.


  Hope this helps,


  Ralph in Kenorq
