Geotagging question

I have just spent a week wandering around Hanoi (Vietnam) taking photos while tracking my movements with Geotag Pro on my iPhone. The process of loading the data into Lightroom and tagging the photos works fine.

Except that the locations are wildly inaccurate, despite my having carefully synchronised the clock on my cameras with my phone (and I have rechecked that since).

I realise that this time I set geotagging to use GPS and GSM data, rather than GPS alone. Given that phone coverage in Vietnam can be a bit sporadic, might this be the cause of the waywardness? Could GSM give a distorted location?

I'm posting this also on the Landscape forum - those guys must use geotagging all the time.
