I am not advertising for DX but I have bought 4 with good results and their 
 units have a 5 V regulator on it. Some have even a TTL to RS converter on

As I said in my first post I'd like  to achieve an accuracy of better 
than 100ns - or 50ns if possible at  reasonable cost.

I had come across the Ublox 6M when I was looking  earlier, but I 
misunderstood the data sheet and thought it was only the  expensive 
($135) LEA/NEO-6T versions which provided timing. Definitely  worth a 
closer look - the NEO-6M is specced at 30ns RMS which is good  enough. 
The power consumption is a little higher than I would have  liked  at 
37mA/3V, but still rather less than  others.
