How do flat earthers explain the use of sextants (much less the operation of GPS) to tell position?

Ignored for four years. I'm glad this was brought to my attention, because I'm interested to see if anybody will respond. Maybe by posting I'll bring attention to it, and we can maybe get this thing answered.
