Your smartphone should be able to tell you much of this info. My Android
phone has an app called "Altitude" that provides this information using the
built-in GPS in my Motorola Atrix 4G. It doesn't report accuracy values,
but once it settles on a reading, it doesn't move much. I am sure there are
better apps. My Blackberry Curve of 2007 would report accuracy values of 3m
- so I don't think the GPS in a modern smartphone is all that inaccurate.

I know that the item below satisfies none of the requirements that Inch
stated, but this is another item to put in any (modern-ish) vehicle...
