I think this would be more significant in environmental, mineral exploration or other types of projects where the relative positions of closely-spaced (E.g., <15 m) samples might be important. As far as recreational hiking is concerned, if the multiple possibilites of your GPS location are all within speaking distance then you might as well consider them to all be in the same place - a 10 m error is of no consequence.
