    CelestNav [was] Re: Leg 83

    Arthur & all-
     I had tried CelestNav and reluctantly deleted it. It certainly is powerful 
    and comprehensive, but I found it needed a lot of memorizing as some of the 
    prompts and jumps (from place to place) were neither intuitive nor clearly 
    labeled for the amateur user.
     The problem could readily be said to be this user, not that program, but even 
    on the tiny screen of the Palm I just felt that the layout and menu interface 
    really needed work to make it "friendlier".
     I kept & bought John Manson's "Pilot Navigator--Sights, Sailing, Piloting" 
    three-pack, which is certainly not as comprehensive but is much much simpler 
    for a fuzzy head to use for simple functions of sight reduction, since it 
    runs in a pure linear entry fashion.
