Hi Shawn.  I've been a user of the Symbian version of Loadstone for a 
number of years now ands it has been a truly fantastic product!  The 
fact that you have been able to offer a talking satnav system of this 
quality for free is almost unbelievable!

I don't currently have an Iphone or know much about them, but I would 
certainly consider purchasing one if you decide to make Loadstone run on 

Yours sincerely,

John Robinson
