Hopefully one of the "navigators" on here can clear up how "off" something would need to be in order to be unavoidably noticable.
I personally would not notice the Sun setting a degree or two off where it should be, or a map being slightly out. If the Sun rose in West for example though it would be global news - the Earth would pretty much have had to start spinning the other way or done a 180 flip on its axis lol.

Almost fell for this but the data just doesn't support it. According to this website, the sun is where it should be & hasn't deviated in decades. Check it for yourself. And if you have a compass, you can check this out for yourself. I love ATS & have been a lurker for years but I had to create an account so I could post this link. So tired of paranoia-mongers trying to scare people needlessly.

You're supposed to use tangential east and west on the globe, not follow the latitude circles to determine distant east/west appearances of the setting sun. Found my answer.
