As reliable as GPS can be, and I do use it as a primary tool when sailing in my home waters, I always have my paper charts out as cross reference and verification. When in areas new to me I will primarily rely on a paper charts and the GPS as back up. There is nothing like your eyes, ears and a good paper chart.
