I would have thought just about any would spit out accurate coordinates you 
could write down. What differentiates them is probably the other things they 
can do, e.g. Help get you there, get you home again, get you back to that spot 

I use my Blackberry 8800 phone's gps, but only because I happen to have been 
given it. As it comes it can't do much more than tell me my lat and long, but 
free add on software lets me see my position on a map (downloaded from Google 
Maps, so as soon as I'm out of phone range I can't see the map anymore!) or 
record a log of where I go. Both applications are useful, but neither is 
totally satisfactoru.
