My statement about GPS was not clear. A GPS is only good if you know what
it is telling you. That usually requires a map. Very few people can
identify locations by Lat/Lon. Outside of the US maps are a riot. My
reference was to using a GPS in the amazon jungle. The GPS was probably
right, however, the maps were so wrong, it didn't matter how accurate the
GPS was. Fifty miles is a lot of inaccuracy.
We have several canyons here in the west where my GPS is worthless. At best
you can get one satellite.
