Celestial Navigation and Piloting with iPhone, iPad, iPod
The state-of-the-art solution to navigation computations on your Apple iPhone or iPod touch is here.
StarPilot does celestial sight reductions of all bodies using high-precision internal almanac, plus mathematical and graphic solutions for position fixes, great circle, rhumb line, traverse and composite sailings, all current problems, piloting solutions, and much more...including lunar distance method of finding GMT from the sky and a unique graphical Sight Planner, and the new Sight Analyzer function that helps you get the most accurate results from a series of sights.

Celestial Navigation Sight Planning with iPhone, iPad, iPod
Sunrise, Sunset, times and bearings (amplitudes)
LAN, time, Equation of time, Hs max at LAN1
Nautical and Civil twilight times, and LHA Aries at midpoint between them
Moonrise, Moonset, Moon phase, and Moon age
Precompute specific values of Hc and Zn for any body
Planet and Star ID by observed height and bearing
SIGHT PLANNER function plots full sky showing moon, stars, and planets in Radar-like display of heights and bearings. Set Hc min/max and max number of stars before computation. Set cursor and click to read the actual height and bearing of a plotted body.
Special fast almanac mode allows full sky plot
Display internal list of 173 stars by name, brightness, and location
Unique BEST SIGHTS function selects the optimum triads of sights for any sky
Celestial Navigation Sight Reduction
Optional modes for sequential sights using repeated settings or unrelated individual sights
Perpetual almanac accurate to 2100+
Historically accurate almanac data to 16th century
Sight reduction of Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn... plus Mercury!
Sight Reduction of 173 stars plus Polaris
"Assumed positions" read directly from DR section without extra input
View intercepts (a-values) with or without course and speed corrections
Full input data displayed with results to check for errors
Special center-body mode for artificial horizon data
Dip-short mode for practice at shorelines
Celestial Fixes on iPhone, iPad, iPod
Unique SIGHT ANALYZER fits a sequence of sights to the right slope for optimum sight selection
All fixes corrected automatically for course and speed as needed
Fix accuracy independent of DR accuracy in all cases
Plots LOPS with live cursor position display
Fix computed by USNO algorithm in the Nautical Almanac
Zoom in on plot to see where computed fix is located
Fix can be obtained by graphic selection from the LOP plot
Automatic display of DR-to-Fix range and bearing
Optional automatic update of DR after fix
