The maps may not be, but some of the devices are.  There have been a  
couple of times where I used an APRS waypoint plotted on my GPS to  
locate a balloon payload that was hidden by the landscape.  An extra  
digit of resolution would have helped.

You'd be amazed how easy it is to lose a white box with orange duct  
tape - for instance, when it lands in a red clay field full of  
blooming cotton. (:  I gave up looking and just walked toward the  
waypoint my D7 had plotted on the GPS to find it.
