What is the best GPS to interface with the Arduino?

Is the GPS Bee by SeeedStudio any good?

Here is the link for it: http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/gps-bee-kit-with-mini-embedded-antenna-p-560.html

I really need to know if this one is good and if anyone else has ever used it and their experience and problems with it. If there are any better alternatives, please mention them.


All help will be much appreciated!

Thanks!

What kind of GPS did you have in mind? For example, an inexpensive Garmin Nuvi model that you could use standalone from the arduino? Has a PC interface, hard to tell if they continuously put out NMEA data.
Or something more like this

Hook up an antenna & power & it starts putting out NMEA data.
