Przemyslaw,

I like your idea. It makes sense, and also parallels somewhat the process of 
adding a default GPS in the GPS menu.

In fact, a really great improvement would be to add a menu item "Save as 
defaults" to the database and checkpoints menu.

The file names and their pathes could be stored in a file "Default_database" 
and "Default checkpoints".
Then we easily achieve what we want hee.
I am often forced to change databases due to staying in different places, so 
I feel the problem.
