I'm working on a school project and my team needs the smallest GPS possible. With some help from stackoverflow, we found https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11571 from sparkfun.

This is good enough to prototype, but we were wondering if smaller GPS's exist out there just for knowledge's sake.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The requirements are that we can poll it for long/lat and hopefully it has decent battery life. Thanks! \$\endgroup\$ – cskoala Feb 9 '13 at 20:12

    \$\begingroup\$ You should add the requirements to your question. Decent battery life. What's the max current? What information do you need? How small should it be? Etc. etc. \$\endgroup\$ – Keelan Feb 9 '13 at 20:27

If you can use component level GPS, There are smaller modules from Trimble (Zelia), from OriginGPS (14xx and the 44xx). However, all such modules will require a PCB design. The smallest one is ~5x5mm, but does not include an antenna.
