    GPS coordinates should be accurate to at least 30 feet. But if the receiver can see only a limited number of satellites fixes may be in significant error. Additionally, signals may bounce off walls, rock faces, etc., throwing off the timing data and creating error. Moisture in tree canopies (possibly enhanced by precipitation) attenuate signals. In that case the receiver again doesn't see enough satellites to get a tight fix. How tax records enhance fixing a location escapes me. Unless you sent the SOS from home. Either way, letting anything rub the nav and type-in keys is ...um... not wise. Seems to me you got handed the bill for learning, the hard way, about protecting the keys.

    About only reliable way to hit the nav buttons is to use the end of a small stick or small pen or pencil. I understand the real estate available for the buttons is limited, but there has to be a better way to manage the problem for large fingered users.

    This idea is fine for hikers, etc. unless they stop for a break or to set up camp.. For users with a car, motorcycle, or bicycle, some stops are planned. Of course a stop could also mean "I crashed". For boaters, a stop could be anchoring, or "I've run aground". The point is that not all stops are bad news. Enabling or disabling "this stop is bad news" is fine. Unless the user forgets to change from " this stop is OK" to "this stop is bad news".
