    Will,Dan, et al.
    Someone has done it already. Found this on ZDnet's software site. The info I
    cut and pasted below. Haven't had a chance to look it over and see what it
    does/doesn't do. Few weeks back I was swinging through a web site that had a
    _bunch_! of palm pilot programs that had to do with C nav.. Now that I want
    to download and test them I cant find the ^*)^%&*^ website. I even looked in
    my history folder (not a pretty site:-) There where some (a lot) of programs
    that let you program your palm like it was an RPC <sp?> calc.
    Hope this helps.  Oh BTW the name of the program is Pilnavig it comes as a
    zipped file all of 61K.

    PS Im all for doing it the easy way although I still want to be able to do
    it the long (paper,pencil and tables) way.
    ****Start Paste******
    The program consists of three modules, and offers sailing navigation help
    that includes calculation of currents, winds, Great-Circles, Mid-Lat
    sailing's, time/degree conversions, and general sight reductions. You can
    perform complete sun sight reductions without an almanac.
