    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  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.
