Simple Electronic Navigation - Mike Chinery

Fernhurst, 1991, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.

Illustrated with B&W photographs and diagrams. 2nd Edition. From the cover: “Every boat owner can now afford a simple electronic navigation system: indeed electronic navigators are fast becoming an essential you can’t afford to be without.

But now you’ve got the magic black box, what can you do with it? Most operators just press the POS button to give a Lat/Long fix and transfer the position to the chart, but modern devices can do a lot more than that. This book explains in simple terms how to get the best from your equipment: how to install and program the system, how to use it to the best advantage on a trip and how to use the additional features incorporated within your set. The Decca, Loran C, Transit, and GPS systems are all covered. Simple Electronic Navigation is packed with practical ideas, tests and tricks only rarely found in the manufacturers’ handbooks which, it always seems, are written by experts for experts.

Second Edition

In this second edition the photos show the latest equipment, and the author has added newly-developed techniques for collision avoidance, new functions, the new chart-plotter system and the current political thinking on the Decca chains and Satnav satellites.”

Size: 9¾" x 7¼". In the Yachtmaster's Guide series. 63 pages.
