You gotta know that D.V. USGS quads haven't all been surveyed (e.g. Grapevine Mtns off Rte. 5) -- then the TRS method doesn't help. I work with maps for documentation purposes, and UTM's and degrees/minutes don't depend entirely on artificial drawn lines, so I think they are more accurate. But you have to set your GPS reciever's basis to match the map's. Mostly "NAD 27" in D.V.
