Yeah, I don't have any experience with GPS and MPH calculations, so I have no idea on accuracy of GPS units. I know my radar gun is accurate to +/- 2mph, as I have used it for motorcycle track days and clocking cars etc. I'm sure there is plenty of debate on skiing speed, everyone has an opinion, just like oil changes! All I know is that 68mph on ski's is damn fast! I ride motorcycles and I very confident the the radar gun was telling the truth. I still want to break 70mph for my satisfaction..LOL!
