Re: GPS Accuracy - how much is actually needed

I think, as others have stated, that accuracy is entirely a non-issue. Another thought about having the sensor in the boat is reliability. Our VHF has an an internal GPS with an internal antenna and on occasions it will not be able to provide a position. I have never had this problem with any device with an external antenna.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
