There is extensive online docmentation at www.u-blox.com,  however you
will need to register to get at the online documentation.  There are
PDF documents describing the hardware and software in great detail.

I've used the UBlox  TIM-LP and  GPS-MS1E in a couple of designs.
They run off 3.3V and provide CMOS level asynchronous outputs.
They can provide either NMEA or a binaryn packet protocol
as output.  

Try www.ublox.com.


You can even buy samples through their web site.  IIRC, the
TIM-LP modules are about $110 each.

I'm using u-blox and their product line is really cool. Their are really
easy to use, output either nmea or their proprietary protocol (which I like
better) and they provide up to 4 fixes per second.
They are about to release their WS line (weak signal), that supposedly works
even indoors. I'm going to try it.

Try Furuno... I know they make some that are maybe 1/4" x 1" x 2" (6 mm
x 25 mm x 50 mm), connector for external antenna, 5.0 or 3.3 V, serial
output in standard ASCII formats.  I think it's logic serial and you
need to follow with a MAX232 or equal to get RS232 serial.  One antenna
I have seen used is a "puck" that is maybe 1/2" thick by 2" diameter (13
mm x 50 mm).

Have a look at the Lassen IQ module as sold by Step GPS in Oz.
http://www.stepgps.com /
3.3v at 30mA. Needs an active antenna (also from Step)

It's AUS$ 88.00 (inc GST) and there are different antennas about
AUS$50.00.  You also need an adapter cable, for the antenna plus an
interface connector.  

Very small unit.  I'm looking at using them for GPS tracking.

When you get it make sure you don't put it down somewhere - they're
pretty easy to lose!
