I had Trekbuddy on Samsung B2710 for over two years and now I've got a used Motorola defy+. I was expecting better GPS accuracy but I think it's actually worse. B2710 could go all the way to +-2m (rarely but it did) while the defy+ can go only to +-4.7m and is usually +-9.4m accurate (measured in TB and OruxMaps). It's also moving around a lot when I'm standing still. On forest roads it can drive slalom around the road.

I was wondering how to estimate GPS accuracy. I was thinking that B2710 gps signal might be filtered somehow and appear more accurate (it doesn't show any satelite info). Any ideas?

On B2710, you can know sat number with the GPS application of the device.
