4.7 GPS Navigational Disclaimer. All Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers are subject to positional error, malfunction, and failure. Prudent mariners do not rely on a single aid to navigation. Although every effort has been made to make the CHS Digital Nautical Product as accurate as possible, the location of geographic features may not coincide with positions obtained when using GPS. Differences between charted information and present conditions may be caused by the level of accuracy of the original survey and natural or man-made changes since the date of survey.
4.8 Datum Shift Note. All chart data are produced with the appropriate NAD83 datum shifts applied. Therefore when viewing a chart referenced to a geodetic datum other than NAD83, the geographic grid or border location may not agree with the cursor or vessel's GPS position. To display your vessel's position correctly on the Digital Nautical Product, the geographic position provided by the GPS receiver must be referenced to NAD83. Please ensure the datum for your GPS receiver is set to NAD83.
