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.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
