I think with the current version of Loadstone you do have to download them
to your computer and send them to the phone.

Personally I've not used Loadstone for walking routes, but I find it
invaluable for trains and public transport.

Good morning.
I have been looking at this application for some time. I have Wayfinder
Access but never got very good at it because of the continuous and rather
high Internet access costs each and every time it is used and because it
won't allow deviation from it's predetermined routes which are not always
the most direct or convenient choices. Of course the future of Wayfinder is
now determined.
I downloaded and installed Loadstone onto my N73 phone remarkably easily and
connected immediately with my Hollux 1000 immediately.
I have been to the Tools section of the Web site and here I am becoming a
little confused.
Do I understand that I can select a region and download it to my computer
then transfer it to my phone?
I do see that I can acquire coordinates for an address, that seems to be
pretty accurate, must I enter that manually or can I somehow push that to
the phone electronically?
Your patience and forbearance will be most appreciated. While I have quite a
bit of computer experience it is to get things done, not because I enjoy the
frustrations of fiddling with the darn things.
Thank you for this and doubtless future assistance.
Dale leavens.
