GPS coordinates can be obtained from either the GPS provider or the network provider, if GPS is unavailable.
The open MapQuest API queries the altitude, and returns a more precise result than GPS. This widget can also be used to calculate altitude for hiking (altimeter).
In an emergency, GPS coordinates can save lives (e.g. when you get lost in a mountain).
