    But is that really an incident of GPS failure?
    
    A poorly installed navigation system was physically broken by a clumsy crew.
    And then a poorly trained bridge crew failed to recognize the inadequate
    warning message (icon change) on their plotting screen.
    
    That's not a GPS failure, that's an engineering and installation failure,
    compounded by a training failure.
    
    The failure is unrelated to GPS, per se. "A poor workman blames the tools".
