This question already has an answer here:
I have just imported a few gps coordinates from a csv file and saved it as a shapefile. Moreover, I have got a vector layer with polygons in this project. Both layers are in EPSG: 32632. The first point has the coordinates 49.465550, 8.47273. If I pan over the layer containing the gps data the coordinates given in the status bar are fine. But if I pan over the the other vector layer it gives coordinates eg 457426, 5481718.
Why are the two coordinate systems different if the two layers have both the same CRS and projection?
Is this the reason why the gps points are awfully off?
