Lived with a GPS for work for several years. Found paper maps were better for big picture. GPS usually was better for the "last half mile" type directions once I was in the neighborhood.

If using a GPS with a cannon it can track the deviation from the predicted path. Won't directly improve that shot but will tell you why you missed. ;-)

Good to have a warning about going off track. Then corrections in the flight configuration can be made. Won't help but the "splat" may not be as much of a surprise. May not hurt as much if you have time to relax before hitting.

Just checking to see if this thing is on life support yet, but looks like it is alive and well.
Morning all.

Nice going Carl! The Timster and I thought you were a NNDGer? When did you flop back? I may have to switch sides to even this out and make it all fairer.

I'm certainly not a flip-flopper, never been on that side and never will be! Perhaps my stance on this thread meeting it's doom hasn't been clear, but hopefully it is now...

With math calculations it is a no brainer to m hit the net.
Maybe a GPS or Navigation SYSTEM may work in a rubarb patch, but not when it comes to rocks and cannon shots.

Maps are the way to go.

Hope you are using the old math. Looking at the new math you would be covering your map with calculations. Plus any recalculations during the flight would take to long before reaching apex.

You also may have noted that he didn't properly identify the variable "m" and that leaves way to much to chance.

I can foresee a huge "SPLAT" in his future.

RIP you canon fodder you.

Yes m will be a large variable. Thus whilst doing the long hand calculations one would have time for a couple wobbly pops which could have a drastic effect on the final outcome. After all you only need to show the correct procedure, the correct answer is optional!!
