We show that previously identified offsets between TGAS parallaxes and distances derived from asteroseismology and eclipsing binaries have likely been overestimated for parallaxes ≲5-10mas (∼90%-98% of the TGAS sample). The observed differences in our sample can furthermore be partially compensated by adopting a hotter Teff scale (such as the infrared flux method) instead of spectroscopic temperatures for dwarfs and subgiants. Residual systematic differences are at the ∼2% level in parallax across three orders of magnitude. We use TGAS parallaxes to empirically demonstrate that asteroseismic radii are accurate to ∼5% or better for stars between ∼0.8-8R. We find no significant offset for main- sequence (≲1.5R) and low-luminosity RGB stars (∼3-8R), but seismic radii appear to be systematically underestimated by ∼5% for subgiants (∼1.5-3R). We find no systematic errors as a function of metallicity between [Fe/H]~-0.8 to +0.4dex, and show tentative evidence that corrections to the scaling relation for the large frequency separation (Δν) improve the agreement with TGAS for RGB stars. Finally, we demonstrate that beyond ∼3kpc asteroseismology will provide more precise distances than end-of-mission Gaia data, highlighting the synergy and complementary nature of Gaia and asteroseismology for studying galactic stellar populations. Description: Our sample consists of dwarfs, subgiants, and red giants from the APOGEE-Kepler Asteroseismic Science Consortium (APOKASC, Pinsonneault+ J/ApJS/215/19), supplemented with seismic detections using Kepler short-cadence data from Chaplin+ (2014MNRAS.445..946C) and Huber+ (2013, J/ApJ/767/127).

Note (1): numax and dnu were calculated using the SYD pipeline, Huber+ (2009CoAst.160...74H), and taken from version 3.6.5 of the APOKASC catalog (Pinsonneault+, in prep) for giants and from a reanalysis of the Chaplin+ (2014, J/ApJS/210/1) sample for dwarfs and subgiants (Serenelli+, in prep). Note that for our analysis we added a 1% and 0.5% uncertainty in numax and dnu in quadrature to the formal uncertainties listed here to account for differences between asteroseismic analysis methods. Note (2): gri denotes KIC photometry converted into the SDSS scale using the transformations by Pinsonneault+ (2012, J/ApJS/199/30).
