    Re: Starstruck Navigation App

    I'd like to add my kudos for the Starstruck navigation app. A recent update brought in a map feature and I can see where my sights end up in my neighborhood. There is also a feature that allows you to e-mail the data. All I had to do was e-mail this to myself. Here is an example from last nights sights: (my GPS position is 35*19.4N 119*05.5W)

    Latitude: 35°19.90'
