Finally realized that the GPS can be wrong, especially in the rural Tennessee/Virginia border area

It used to be the practice of map companies to intentionally introduce errors in their maps, in order to catch anyone re-using the maps and reselling them as their own. I wonder if the sources for GPSes and Google Maps has the same intentional errors?
