    I have a friend who is in the middle of the AB-to-Mate pipeline, and is struggling; currently with T-Nav. I remember years ago when I was in his shoes, that there was an ‘online program’, that everyone raved about though I didn’t take it. It may have only been for celestial? I’m not sure. But I looked at it and it was very well organized, with all the work clearly laid out – to the answer. Might you remember it or recommend such a program?
    Thank you,
