Re: true North

Many GPS unit can give you the sunrise and sunset time for a given
location. Would it be OK to use the mid point between sunrise and sunset
time as true south for the sun?

Polaris is a good indicator of fairly precise true north but
unfortunately for city dwellers like me, it is seldom visible. At the
country location, it is another story, polaris is always there to
help....well at night anyway under clear sky.
