Finding one's geographical position (fix) without the use of a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), which was common place before the establishment of the latter, could be tedious and/or inaccurate. Apart from sound knowledge of spherical trigonometry and navigational methods, it also requires the knowledge of the navigator's approximate or assumed position, the use of the current year's celestial bodies' ephemeris (Nautical Almanac), and graphical methods (Lines of Position – LOP) which sometimes can prove wanting in accuracy and/or challenging for the unaccustomed user. The method proposed here is based on sight reduction from two celestial bodies, and directly calculates the geographical position, both for stationary and moving observers (“running fix”) using easily available modern programmable calculating devices, without the need of the assumed position, graphical methods (LOP) or the current year's ephemeris, hence the term “stand-alone”. This self-contained method is implemented by the author in a software application, which can be easily used in a portable computer (for example, a smartphone). The results are considered satisfactorily accurate.
