Could someone explain something to me? I remeber when GPS devices first came out, I was told that there was a margin of error built into civilian GPS devices that would be accurate to around 15 feet or 15 meters, something like that. It was suppose to be so that a non military person could not get an accurate fix on a site for evil purposes, etc. Is this true today?
When I view my .kml files, Google Earth shows my points anywhere from my nearly exact location to a few hundred feet away on another property while the phone is sitting stationary on my desk. Also I am about 10 miles away from the ocean with no hills. (Florida is pretty flat.) My elevation shows I'm about 100 feet below sea level. I can understand a rounding error in a calculation but what I don't understand is why the same result doesn't continue given no device movement. There shouldn't be a margin of error in points on a stationary device, should there be?
Once again, thanks to all!

Tilt's GPS uses static navigation, so it doesn't work very well if you don't move or you move very slowly. So far I don't think there is a way of disabling static navigation with this model of GPS
