    Re: Digital Sextant

    I use sextants because I enjoy them AND because I want to be self-sufficient.
    
    Yes, I have had one of my Garmin's die on me, and the same thing could
    happen to a digital sextant.  But there are so many other systems in
    GPS that have been largely reliable but which could fail and then where
    would you be?
    
    A digital sextant as I envision it would be completely independent of
    SW radio, WWV, the GPS constellation of satellites, the internet...  This
    is what the US Navy's proposal is also after -- a redundant separate system.

    I don't think technology is the issue. Where is the market? Don't most people 
    use sextants either because they enjoy it or they
    don't trust electronics?
