"I recall use of the term "geo-navigation" in connection with piloting, as perhaps an obscure reference in some original edition of Dutton. On checking HO 220. the Navigation Dictionary, I do find listed the term geo-navigation which is defined as "navigtion by means of reference points on the earth. The term is obsolescent." There is no listing in this or any other pub in my possession for the term "terrestrial navigation". "
Thanks. That's interesting. I have not heard "geo-navigation" before, but I suspect it would resonate with the practice/game of "geo-caching" for a few too many people today. That's a great idea, looking for the expression in a navigation "dictionary". Maybe it's even in a glossary in a very recent edition of Bowditch or Dutton.
