The Garmin Approach R10 portable golf launch monitor uses radar to analyze several metrics like your club path, launch angle, ball speed, and estimated distances and direction. It does not use GPS, but based on its placement to the ground, it will be able to provide shot data without GPS data or elevation information. The accuracy for the radar metrics are outlined below.
