    For the heck of it, I wanted to check the accuracy of my Verizon HTC Trophy with a USGS Benchmark, my Verizon Touch Pro2, and my Garmin eTrex Legend. The info is presented for informational purposes, your mileage will vary.

    USGS Benchmark Coordinates / Elev
    41.658265 Deg N, 78.81156 Deg W, 2029.7 Ft Elev

    The benchmark is visible on top of the sidewalk so I set each of the phones and my GPS unit right on top of it. Results were:

    HTC Trophy (GPS Satellite app)
    41.65823 Deg N, 78.81129 Deg W, 2033.77 Ft Elev

    HTC Touch Pro2 (BeeLineGPSII app)
    41.65819 Deg N, 78.81129 Deg W, 2044.6 Ft Elev

    Garmin eTrex Legend
    41.65820 Deg N, 78.81129 Deg W, 2034 Ft Elev
