IPhone 4S GPS accuracy?

  1. Apr 13, 2012 #1
    How accurate does the GPS on your phone tend to be? When I'm outside, under good conditions I can see impressive accuracy, especially considering the precision of the measurements. I walked to the left of a building this afternoon, out by the parking lot. The phone thought I was positioned just a few feet away. Not bad, huh?

    I can't give you any technical, but I've been impressed as well. It's real nice for driving.

    There's probably an app for that. I have one for droid called "gps test" that says 12.1 feet at the moment.
