There's another angle to GPS usage: whilst birders will happily go from
dawn to dusk, partners/spouses often don't share this level of commitment
and start to grizzle around morning tea-time. I have witnessed "the new
toy" in the hands of a person with only a mild interest in birds and the
transformation was immediate.  "You find them and I'll log them." 

As the purpose of the Atlas project is to map bird numbers and
distributions, volunteers will need all the assistance and partner support
we can get! I agree with other postings that a GPS should be used only in
conjunction with other navigational tools.
