Any body have a manual for a Navtronic Explorer?
A friend of mine recently acuired a Navtronic Explorer flight calculator that seens to work. Problem is there is no manual with it and I can't figure out how to use it. Does anybody out there have a manual for one of these that could be copied? We would certianly be willing to pay postage and copy fees if someone has one that their willing to share.
I am pretty sure I do. I believe they made two versions of the calculator, I am not sure which version I have. I would think they worked about the same, so instructions for one should be good for either one. I will dig it out, and I could copy or scan it for you. E-mail me at: ScottSchwarz@stratanet.com if you are still intrested.
Email sent, thanks

As I recall you had to enter the latitude and longitude of the destination, not just an identifier. So it was a little slow, I didn't try to use it in a cockpit in the air, but I did use it for preflight planning and so it would give me the read out which might me from Aspen to Oshkosh of 62* and 820 n miles or similar, which was faster than having to measure it on the sectionals.
I of course, backed it up with a course line on the sectionals and/or wac charts.
