    I thought military accuracy was hardware based to the gps chip

    GPS Kit does UTM, which according to the wikipedia article is the same as MGRS but uses different labeling.

    MGRS has nothing to do with GPS - it's merely a means of referencing position other than Lat/Long.

    As far as relative accuracy, Selective Availability has been completely phased out for a couple years now, every GPS receiver receives exactly the same signal.
