[Loadstone] Format and use of checkpoint files

According to the "menu and key reference" of the Loadstone-GPS docs, a
comment's maximum length is 75 characters.  There's a setting  to
automatically announce comments off, on approach, on arrival or both, and a
key (Long 5 in navigation and long star in exploration) to announce the
comment of a point.
Hope that's helpful,

Subject: [Loadstone] Format and use of checkpoint files

I try to completely understand the format description for waypoint files.
The describing file in the source code package doesn't say anything 
about usage and length restriction of the comment field.

Let me ask two simple questions:

1) Where the comment is used? When is it displayed/read during loadstone 
2) What's the maximum length of the description?
