That might explain why the best navigational tools is your eyes; especially when used with a paper chart, handbearing compass, plotter, dividers and pencil.
Even with a "properly" set chartplotter, it shows me on land when I am anchored stern-to in Princess Bay on Wallace Island. The leadline says I have 20 feet of depth off the stern.
