The way I'm seeing this is that Google maps rounds to the nearest tenth of a mile and GPS is to t he nearest hundredth?

So Google adds 528 feet to every mile but GPS only adds 50 feet. So for every 10 miles Google shows it's actually 11 miles? Sounds a little extreme to me. Unless I'm not understanding what you are getting at.

I can't imagine Google being 100 miles off for the 1000 mile trip I make to see my family in Myrtle Beach.
