    Re: Navigation system failure
    From: Bill Lionheart

    One of my regular crew once tried to count the number of GPS devices
    on my boat. He missed quite a few, including one in a camera. The most
    accurate however was in my Samsung Galaxy phone. It was the first
    device I had that worked with Glonass. No shame in falling back on a
    phone for GPS. I am only going to need to fall back to celestial
    navigation off shore when no GNSS signals are available. Then you can
    start counting how many quartz clocks I have hidden on the boat.
