    Re: Calculate new coordinates given bearing and distance?

    Dear Lars,

    You say:

    ...for practical navigation you do not need these formulas.

    I must be misunderstanding that statement. What else do we do when doing DR? I thought - we are obtaining the coordinates of a point where we would occur if we carry on for HH:MM:SS of time with V knots at DDD° course. One of possible way to know these coordinates - is using exactly those formulas.

    Please comment.

    Warmest regards,
    Tony
