+hobgoblinkiteflier Posted November 11, 2013 Share Posted November 11, 2013 On a few occasions I have noticed that the coordinates that I get using the averaging function seem to be less accurate than if I just simply mark a waypoint. For example, the for last cache I hid, I averaged the coordinates on three separate occasions for about 5 minutes each time. The second finder commented that the coords were off, so I checked and sure enough they were about 8 metres out. When I recorded the coords, the Oregon 450 was reporting 4-5metre accuracy, so I expected it to have averaged to something better than this. I marked a couple of waypoints, one either side but close to the tree where the cache was hidden. Then again tonight I took a couple more readings. The average of these is 0.005' North the 15minutes of auto-averaging figures. Has anyone else seen this kind of problem? I think I might forget about the averaging function and just take a few standard waypoints on different days, letting the GPS settle each time. Quote Link to comment
