I think the main use for "averaging" was for when Selective Availability (SA) was turned on and activly degrading our accuracy.
Since this has been turned off, and our 'civilian' GPS's units are more accurate than before, the 'averaging' feature in our GPS units is pretty much useless. (BUT .. they *could* turn SA back on at *any* time ... if they wanted to )
