Nav Utilities

In addition to the celestial navigation aids already examined, StarPilot also provides a host of useful general purpose navigational functions. Access to these functions is via a series of cascading menus starting with the DR-and-Piloting menu. Functions are loosely categorized and placed in a menu with other similar utilities. For example, the Route Sailings menu contains functions which cover the various ways to compute routes from point to point. This help file section mirrors the Piloting menu structure in the application. Please follow the appropriate links to find information on a particular topic.
