Well, not all GPS devices are equal.. and there's always going to be a
device better at XYZ if the device specialises in a particular
technology.. but the power to extract more meaning from less accurate
data is preferrable to having more accurate data which is harder to
apply context to.
'Tagging' street names is slower than extracting the data.. but how
quicker would it be if one could in 'map my route' mode, hit a button,
speak the name of the street.. or a geographical feature, which is
recorded relative to the GPS timestamps?
