Coordinates conversion to bearing and distance Message #1 Posted by rodf on 23 July 2007, 12:43 a.m.
Hi,
I stumbled onto this forum while looking for an old calculation I used to perform with my HP11C back in my civil draughting days.
The quick calculation involved converting latitude and longitude coordinates into a bearing and a distance using only the functions on the 11C : hr/hms, sigma +/, polar/vector.
The old 11C finally broke down and I now have a 32sII ( once an rpn user, always an rpn user ) but for the life of me I can't remember how to perform the conversion and was wondering if there was a forum member here that may know the correct way to do it??
I'm an avid fisherman and I'm keen to find the answer so I can use it for quick navigation purposes. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Apologies if this has already been discussed and answered.
Regards,
Rod
