Better than an ILS in my .02.
Well, maybe 98% of the time you'll use the GPS. -

My last instrument student had a perfect day, weather wise, for his cross country. We planned the LPV approach at KCIC. But its minimums were "only" 300' and 1. Weather kept going downhill, and when we got there it was down to 200 and 1/2. The ILS got us in. At 300' AGL we were solid IMC, the LPV would not have worked.

It's not too often, but sometimes nothing but the ILS will get you where you want to be.
