[Loadstone] Can I be told where I am?

Loadstone will indeed only announce approaching and arriving for points that
are checked. If you're using many points on a route you can easily save and
then reload a checkpoint list as you mention. Alternatively, pressing the
star key whilst in exploration mode will check a point.
If I ever need to alert myself that I'm approaching our gate, I load up
loadstone before I walk out, perform an area search with long-select in
navigation mode, press select on my "home" point, then star to check it. A
press of 0 puts me back into navigation ready to head off.
Hope that's helpful!

Subject: [Loadstone] Can I be told where I am?
I have a Nokia N86, which I am using with its built-in GPS. For a few
days I have tried Loadstone, so Im not at all an experienced user.
I have entered some points, while walking around where I live (west
coast of Norway) Now I want to be informed, whenever I approach one of
these points. I have tried Exploration and Navigation modes, plus
experimented a bit with different settings under Configuration, without
being able to obtain this goal.
Do I have to place my points in a list of Checkpoints, and retrieve this
list before starting to walk? Any other suggestions?
I hope Loadstone can help me to achieve more independence in the future,
so Im thankful for answers.
