Since 1m/s ~= 2.25mph, storing m/s directly (as an integer) would actually make the problem worse. (Tenths of a m/s would be fine.)

Yes, multiply the float by 10 (dm/s) and round to integer should be fine. The accuracy info that I can find on various GPS chips basically works out to about +/- 0.5 mph.

In the latest iOS beta, I believe this is now fixed. I saw 60mph this morning. I screencapped it, but then accidentally deleted it.

I have not been able to get any multiple of 15 on my Android until the recent Android beta.

Might be related to Android version and the resolution returned by the location service, but in any case since the last public release it's been fixed for my Nexus 4. I no longer have my old Galaxy S 4G to compare against.

It is indeed fixed. The client is able to display every speed from 25mph - 50mph, which encompasses many of the previously "skipped" speeds.

It has nothing to do with the location service itself; the problem was entirely due to how the software stored and converted those values. Does this mean they read my notes? :-)

Well it does depend on the GPS chip, and as a result the location service, have precision of at least 0.447 meters/s. Basically this means any reasonably recent phone should be ok on any supported platform.
