AwardtravelR VS ANA for accurate award availability

I know that the MP award page is notorious for showing award availability (especially on LH) that is not really not accurate. I have been told on numerous threads that the ANA Award tool is the best site to use to see "true" availability. I was also looking at AwardTravelR.com and that site shows much more availability then the ANA site. Does anyone know if this site is accurate or do they just get there information from UA? If that site is accurate then it is much easier to use then ANA? But if not I would love to know so I don't waste my time.

I believe it gets its data from ANA. However, I've seen availability on the AwardTravelR.com site and not been able to book it with UA miles (even by calling).

There was certainly more availability on AwardtravelR then ANA which made me believe they got there info from ANA and UA. so I guess that site is no better then UA. I guess ANA us what I need to use
