    Garmin Edge 500 versus Endomondo on Blackberry

    Does anyone know the accuracy of the GPS on a Blackberry. The guys I ride with have dingle berries running endomondo and are always 1/2 mile longer than my Garmin 500 on every second recording. Does Endomondo record more often than 1 second?

    cell phone GPS receivers are inherently less accurate. they have smaller antennas, many have lower sampling rates, and they're just a less expensive processor chip than what you find on a dedicated receiver.

    some apps do their in-house processing better than others (any app HAS to do in-house processing of the raw GPS data, because the raw data is crap), but they can only make the resulting file so much better.
