If you are using it for something important, get a real GPS.  They aren't that expensive and more accurate and convenient.  And if it is really, really, important, get a professional time unit.

No need for rooting.  There are other apps, but here is one:

Hey folks,

I've got this Nexus One that I carry around with me because it's a
pretty neat piece of hardware.  But I go days at a time without using
it, since I don't have voice service on it and it's not always connected
to the net.

I was thinking I'd put a Debian chroot on it and put it in the rack.
I'm starting this telephone company, and I hear that having a local time
source is important for time-sensitive tasks like TDMA and whatnot.
I've been trying to get an old Delorme TripMate I was gifted set up for
this role.  But I've been unable to get it working.  I did get gpsd
sync'd up with ntpd, though.  That was pretty easy.

Have any of you got any experience using a Nexus One as a GPS source for
gpsd?  Got any pro tips?  I'm happy to write patches if necessary.
