    Re: Keep checking your GPS

    Sean:

    It's well documented that many older GPSs kept accurate time internally, but when you asked for the time to be displayed, there was a distinct delay in the display due to the slow speed of the internal display electronics of the unit.  

    It's possible that this is the cause of the two second "error" that you are seeing.

    I have an old Magellan eXplorist 200 handheld GPS which is displaying a -2 second error. However, it is showing my location precisely. Is that normal?
