If I navigate to a saved waypoint to my home, it is right on the money.
I run into this problem too with different GPS systems. If it's a location that I'll return to I use lat-long to pinpoint it, and save it to my favorites. Here's a site that lets you pinpoint the lat-long down to a couple of feet.
