Hi Jonathan,


my system isn't easy to understand if you try to understand all 25 benefits
at once. 

Let's describe only the location code benefit: the codes consist on hours,
minutes and radius, nothing else. It was made for children, so please try to
think like a child.


Instead of molesting your customers with an address like:      


Howbery Park, Wallingford Oxfordshire, OX10 8BA,


you could indicate this:   <http://www.volksnav.de/HRwallingford>


193 blocks of houses from Oxford Carfax tower in direction m4, 

respectively 93 blocks later than m4.


The width of a sector is radius/2 (!), so you're close to the sector m5.


Besides: VolksNav is something like the military ro-theta navigation.
