Is anyone else experiencing strange GZ's on Google's maps? When I grab a waypoint, average over 200 samples with a circle of 8', it shows my waypoint well over 100' away of the actual spot in their maps. But when I go back to the actual spot in person, the GPSr says I am dead on. I noticed it happening starting about a week ago.

Easy solution: don't worry about it.

I don't know that I am worried about. More of just a strange observation, that is.

That sort of thing happens often.. Here's a particularly bad example
