Sparkfun makes some very cool prototype boards for a variety of GPS
modules.  Just add a battery.

I have also configured my BeeLine GPS APRS trackers as GPS only -- It
consists of just a Lassen IQ GPS module, 3V regulator, and a couple of
connectors on a small circuit board.  Lasts 10+ hours on a single 750
mah li-poly battery.
