I have an Android phone. I do not pay anything for GPS service. It is free,
gets a fix within 15-20 seconds, and typically gives me 4 metre accuracy in
the city.

My old Garmin eTrex Legend takes at least 2 minutes to get a fix, 5 or more
if in a new location, and gives me 8-20 metre accuracy.

The Android phone is so good as a GPS that I bought an extended battery to
go with it.
