    Re: GPS accuracy
    From: Rodney Myrvaagnes

    I have used GPS receivers forabout 11 years, starting with
    a Motorola Traxar (6-channel) and later a Lowrance and a
    Garmin 48, both 12 channel. In none of them did I ever see
    what yyou describe. They all showed the same behavior as
    those stationalry receivers poltted on the web.
    
    The Lowrance and Garmin units can plot a track, so it is
    easy to log for hours at a time while tied to a dock. The
    Traxar required a lot of hand work to record for a few
    hours, but I did it when the unit was new.
    
    I am quite certain that your receiver is faulty. I wouldn't
    leave without a second unit, preferably of a different
    kind, to cross check.
