What service/plan is your unit going to use, if you don't mind me asking?
i ask because I recently asked a GSM related question in project guidance

I have an AT&T account currently so for testing i will be using that but the end result will probably be a T-Mobile pre-pay for about $15-20 a month.

The GSM shield that i am ordering is found at sparkfun: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9607

you will also need at least a small antenna so just choose whichever meets your projects requirements.

Thanks for the info.  I see two routes to take.  Cellular is one, the other is APRS and ham radio.

It isn't hard to get a ham radio license.  And it is a standard data format.  There are several sites you can use to track that data onto google maps.
