Re: ASA Coastal Nav Exam - HELP
Because it looked like I was the only one in the class that didnt know what program was being used.
I quite like using OpenCPN and some the tools it has to do "traditional navigation. I am trying to get them include a labeling plugin, but to no avail. I use Elements for web posting and PowerPoint for classroom work and publishing. An earlier link is to the PowerPoint notes for teaching the running fix in class. I was able to use different coloured lines for different LOP's and the course line to prevent confusing them.
