Actually, I'm pretty sure that you'll get pinpoint accuracy. It all depends on the quality of the maps.

As a test, take your phone, cache a certain area of Google Maps for offline use, turn off all data and use the offline maps with GPS.

I'm pretty sure it will be pretty accurate. It's triangulation via cell towers that is not precise. Both triangulation and GPS would be ideal though.
