    I don't see the need to spell GPS out.  Or Radar, or Loran, or... Works just
    fine for me as is.  Not clear that we can discuss navigation these days
    without comparing the strengths and weaknesses of all available systems,
    past, present and future, so GPS, Radar etc. are bound to creep in on
    occasion, and IMHO the present spirit allows for that, so is just fine.
    
    By default, some of these recent technologies have to be discussed so the
    serious navigator can be aware of their capabilities, minus the hype--and
    they obviously have some shortcomings.
    
    As there are lists devoted to GPS, folks that want to discuss it at length
    or engage in the finer points of that system will be better served there
    anyway.
    
    Thanks for providing an excellent forum, Dan.
