I think it would be a nice Idea to mark gps-points as one of the foollowing:
   inaccurate, wrong, outdated.
For this it might also help to also import dop, hdop, pdop into the database.
And then let the user decide, which ones he wants to download and display.

If we expand the importing. It might also be usefull (if not already done) to 
import speed values from the gpx-file.
