Also, the latest version of Calibre (v0.7.44) can save the proper metadata into any .mobi file that will allow Amazon to sync "Furthest Page Read" data for non-Amazon books. If you are importing a .mobi file, you will have to "convert" it to .mobi to get the extra metadata. If you are converting a file to .mobi, the meta data is added automatically. Note that you cannot customize the ASIN field (so "Book Description" menu item on Kindle, from within the book, won't work properly).
Thanks for this - I've been copying the .mobi files directly onto my Kindle without converting via Calibre, so I'll give that a try.

Do I assume correctly that I would then use the Sync to Furthest Page Read menu option to then get me back to my furthest reading position, even though I don't have Whispersync enabled?
