I would suspect inaccuracies in both the GPS locations and the elevation database.  The former is a function of the quality of the GPS reciever - recreational GPS is accurate to only 5 meters at the best.  Unfortunately, the only way to acquire accurate values is to rent a survey-grade (centimeter accuracy) GPS receiver (not cheap) and use its location & elevation data to calculate the slopes.

Sorry I cannot provide a better answer.
