How accurate is the GPS Speedometer on a Hero 7?

For example, an OBDII port for a vehicle connected to a phone app is as accurate up to +/- 1mph. Some other equipment is +/- 5mph.

 

What is the accuracy of the Gopro 7?

Phones will always be more accurate as they also use cell towers for triangulation GPS data.
