Re: GPS Accuracy - how much is actually needed

I can understand that most people are not navigation fanatics and chart plotters do seem to make things so easy. However, you need to consider what has happed to some people on land who relied on GPS for nav and who have driven right into rivers or gotten lost. You really do need to be watching to verify that you are where it says you are or that hazards have not moved. Considering the necessity to be watching carefully, does extreme accuracy matter?
