Different elevation gains using iPhone app and Edge 200 - which is accurate?

I just got a new Garmin Edge 200 and took it on the first ride today. I ran the iPhone app as well and uploaded both to the Strava website for comparison. The distance and time came back the same. However the elevation gain is different by about 700 feet. I requested an elevation lookup on both files and it is still is around 700 feet (6,009 feet using the app and 5,346 using the Edge). I checked the ride on Garmin Connect it says 5,500. So my question for you guys is which do you think is the most accurate?
