I started messing around with all the options and my GPS suddenly became inaccurate - had set GPS to WAAS for starters

To resolve - I reset to factory settings and reloaded the maps - Now it's fantastic and can trust it again.

My Question, anyone know why...I thought WAAS was meant to be more accurate?

When you played around with it you probably changed the map datum from WGS84 to something else.

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing ;-)
