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.

E.g. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/London

'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?
