    And we just had two illustrations of your point, the race boat going aground on a well know reef and the U.S. sailors getting too close to an Iranian island, both caused on reliance only on GPS and complacency.

    "Simply put, super easy single source position input lulls us and renders us easily distracted to the point where we stop actively looking for danger. From my conversations with a fair number of shipwrecked sailors, this seems to be the ultimate cause of many vessel groundings and accidents (and don’t get me started on “asses with autopilots”).  It isn’t the GPS that’s the problem, its human frailty."
