Thanks, Omatako. I like to keep practiced-up with my sextant, and it seems kind of silly to look at the GPS for time when using the old standbye. For noonsites, I like to have a digital readout: makes it a bit easier to keep track of things. My ancient timex needs replacing, I'm spending more time calculating seconds lost/gained than taking sites!
