Default 2 x GPS' on a Quad?

I have been flying autonomously for some time now and have over 100 missions under my belt with no major upsets.
Someone suggested that fitting 2 GPS' could improve landing accuracy.
Usually my quad lands within a couple of feet from where it took off but occasionally up to a couple of meters difference.
Has anyone had any experience with 2 x GPS' on a Pixhawk?
I have fitted an extra one and it is working OK but due to high winds lately I haven't been able to test it out apart from short hops.

I didnt gain anything with the extra GPS so I removed it again. I have seen some commercial ones with 3 GPS fitted with provision for more as well. They claim more accuracy.
