Hi Bert,

A good thought but the problem is that the speed is only so accurate from 
the GPS receiver.  Normally when walking, driving or flying it takes some 
time for the receiver to catch up.  So, it will never be accurate to with 
in a decimal place.  The other problem is that the NMEA protocol (the 
language the GPS receiver speaks when talking to the phone) doesn't define 
speed with such persision.
