    Get an HP-48G+ or the new HP-49G.  They are very programmable and will suit
    your needs well.
    
    A Palm Pilot is not great because you cannot program it easily.  You need a
    good programmable calculator if you want to do celestial navigation well.

            It is back to school time and those adds on calculators from Office
    Depot
    and Office Max stirs my interest to get a new one.  The rub is keeping up
    with the specs.   The Texas Instruments calculators start with TI 73 through
    TI 92 Plus and Hewlett Packard HP 32 II, HP 48G, HP 48G+, HP 48GX, and HP
    49G.
            I want  just a little more calculator than I really need.  I want a
    calculator that  can program all the sailing programs, or most of them.
            On this list I have seen mention of both the TI 82 and the HP 32 as
    models
    of preference for navigation.  As one  knows every year it seem manufactures
    come out with a newer model or an improved one.  Will the newer models
    handle the same programs as the HP 32 and TI 82.   Any suggestion.
    
    Still...............
