It depends on your data source. If you have different data sources for
street data, you're going to get slightly different coordinates. It's
unclear which is more accurate if it's off by only 40 feet. Personally, I
think if your GPS unit doesn't find a point on the nearest street if a
coordinate is off by 40 feet, your GPS system has too tight of tolerances.

It works when I try the one from non-yahoo. My GPS has a software
that allows me connect via USB and dump the geocodes into it as POI.
