  • GPS accuracy

    I have a Furuno GP-1650WF.I was given settings by a Furuno dealer that would convert the unit to loran capabilities.He advised the unit would convert the lon/lat numbers from the satellites to loran numbers.My question is are the loran numbers availible more accurate than the lon/lat numbers? On most/all maps etc. the lon/lat numbers are only to the hundreths(01) not thousandth (001).As I understand in your other information this is only accurate to 60 feet. Would I be better off converting my unit,if I do and it would happen to work I don't know how to get back?
