Went with a GPS18LVC

5 volts - PC configurable output.

I note the data is a suido rs-232 and swings 0 - 5 volts.

D700 loves it.

Scot has a Deluo for $58, and a Garmin GPS18LVC for $78.  I've used  
several of the GPS18s - they're top notch.  I work with a fellow who  
bought the Deluo to go with his OT and has had no problems.  Either  
will connect to an OT.

Both of these need regulated +5V and may need rs232 level conversion,  
depending on your application.  If you want something a bit more  
general purpose, add the Deluo USB adapter for $10.50, or get a  
Garmin GPS18PC for $89 from adventuregps.com.

If you want to go cheap, prepare yourself for some work and look for  
surplus GPS engines out of tracking systems.  My "main" GPS attached  
to my D700 is a $13 Trimble SV6 which required re-flashing with a DOS  
computer after I built an interface board.
