Coordinates conversion to bearing and distance « Next Oldest | Next Newest »

The quick calculation involved converting latitude and longitude coordinates into a bearing and a distance using only the functions on the 11C : hr/hms, sigma +/-, polar/vector. The old 11C finally broke down and I now have a 32sII (- once an rpn user, always an rpn user -) but for the life of me I can't remember how to perform the conversion and was wondering if there was a forum member here that may know the correct way to do it?? I'm an avid fisherman and I'm keen to find the answer so I can use it for quick navigation purposes. Any help is greatly appreciated. Apologies if this has already been discussed and answered.

I don't have the manual now but I remember that there is such a formula in the book. It would be easy to adapt it to the 32SII.
