The purpose of the present article is representation of Navigator program soft the on the example of the solution of some problems of naval astronavigation by different methods. The Navigator system not only will be calculated the ephemeris data, being the electronic version of "The naval astronomical yearbook", but also to solve the standard problems of naval astronavigation connected with determination of the position of a ship and a compass’ correction. Now the system has determination of the position of a ship by a high-rise method on simultaneous and observations occurring at different times to 4 stars, on two observations of the Sun occurring at different times, determination of the position of a ship by an azimuthal method on simultaneous observations to 4 stars; a compass’ correction on Polar are carried out. Input of a task is carried out by means of a graphical user interface. The solution is submitted in a graphic form (tablet) and the protocol of the decision in a text form.
