[Loadstone] Using Loadstone

         Routing algorythms are patented hence their lack in loadstone. 
They are also not easy to implement without stepping on someone elses 
legal toes.
Perhaps the open sourcing of parts of wfa will help here.

There are a number of ways to simulate routing however loadstone does 
not do routing in the same way classical gps programs do.
You can record a route and then feed the route into the breadcrum 
generator in order to get it to generate waypoints with directional 
information in them.

Otherwise you use a series of check points and navigate from point to 
point with directions to the next point being what loadstone provides.
This assumes you have good orientation skills and that you have enough 
points to guide you around mobility hazards.
Regards, Kerry.
