Default Speed board/ski apps inaccurate? why?

Was going to post this in original thread I found it, but I would've been risking a thread "hiJack accusation",

So I decided a new post!

I'm not interested so much in everyone telling me "Their App IS accurate!" Or their app is ALWAYS OFF etc.

I'm more interested to know why would that be so. Give some evidence or explanation for why that would be so!

I ask because although I don't expect them to be spot on, I usually rely on them being within 3-5 mph. give or take! The phone apps I use for MTB'ing seem to line up with about that degree of accuracy when compared to the wired speedo/odo on my bike!

They are the same class of application on the same general sorts of terrain, relatively remote locations, elevation, trees & tight turns, especially for you "Glades riders"? So why would the snow sports dedicated apps be inaccurate for boarding? Just curious, as I logged almost 50 mph this season. (...only reasonably sure it was at or just above 45 mph, but still, a personal best for me!!! I'd like to feel good about my "Bragging Rights!")
