Most accurate GPS for speed healing

Apologies for the repost, if any, but what do you guys use for a GPS for speed healing? I have an older Garmin car mount gps and was wondering if that is sufficient in making most accurate adjustment for my speedo healer?

Thanks

That's what I did.

But just remember that you phone will only update your GPS position once a second, then calculates your speed off of those locations. So hold a steady speed for as long as you can before judging how far your speedo is off.
So in theory, the faster you can go the same speed for a longer time will be more accurate the gps speedo will be.

Some GPS units will can update its position up to 10 times a second.
