    For those on the list that don't already know it, Hal's CelestNav is a
    terrific program that runs on you Palm OS handheld. All the bodies I
    could ever shoot (upper and lower limbs included), LOP solution, great
    interface that is finger-friendly, all the almanac data you could want,
    fix calculation, twilight times, distance off by sextant, and basic
    sailings.  It is a great aid to learning and improving your skills not
    to mention a very practical tool for use at sea.  It is worth a visit to
    www.mobilegeographics.com/celestnav/ to investigate it if you are
    considering a navigational computer.  I don't get a cut and I don't know
    Hal except for his comments here, I am just an enthusiastic user who
    purchased the product long before I found this list.

    Nothing so ambitious; 2.4 is a fairly small upgrade as far as
    features go.  It has much improved Sailings calculation (with
    time/speed included), mass fix/sight delete, and some internal
    cleanup to make it run better on the forthcoming new hardware.
    Still on my queue, to be done as fast as I can get through them, are:
    LOP plotting, fix plotting, sight averaging, sight planning,
    printing, data exporting, short dip, bubble horizon, artificial
    horizon, LAN latitude, and Polaris latitude.  These are all things
    that people have asked for, and that I think are worth doing.
