Re: Magnetic Variance

I'm glad to hear I got the math right. I struggled with it for a while, which I'm sure you could tell from my posts. It just finally clicked. Once I got it straight in my head when to add and when to subtract, the rest was easy! When I wrote out the givens, I randomly picked numbers and even mixed up the order to make it more confusing. The variance, deviation, and at least one type of bearing should always be available.

I'm currently reading Navigation: A Newcomers Guide and the next subject is dead reckoning. I haven't made it through that part yet though.

Thank you all for your help. It's greatly appreciated!!
