Measuring Horsepower

I'm trying to find out some information about measuring horsepower in car. I know someone here who is trying to get his car dyno'd, and finally found somewhere to do it here. The thing is, when we went to the place, they talked about 2 different methods for testing HP. First on was you normal roller kind, but the other was going on the highway and using a GPS. I'm not familiar with using GPS at all to do this, but they said it would be more accurate. Can anyone chime in as which which they have used and which is better for determining the actual amount of HP the engine is putting out?
