    I use a pair of HP32 SII's for navigation. But only because they were
    gifts, at the same birthday. I use one programmed for Mercator Sailing
    DR and One programmed for Sight Reduction. They barely have enough
    memory to work the programs.
    I have an HP48GX that has a lot of Navigation programs available but
    the HP48's have a steep learning curve and are RPN calculators. Also HP
    has introduced a new HP49 recently. Tom Metcalf has a program written
    for the SX series that can be adapted to the GX.
    The Texas Instrument TI 82(and above) are excellent algebraic
    calculators and Bill Wallace has a very good program available for them.
    If I were to go to a dedicated navigation calculator I would pick the
    Celestocomp V.
    But my ideal choice is a Handheld dos computer that I could run Navig
    on and also use as a log and calculator.
