Dave,
 
that depends on which uBlox the unit supports. There are basically three  
different sizes: AMY, LEA, and NEO. They also sell chip-sets, but only to 
very  large volume customers.
 
Any of the uBlox-6 will be excellent, the choice will depend on  
form-factor, and also if you need a timing-version that supports position-hold  mode 
(denoted as a -T) or not. Even the uBlox-5 units are already extremely  good.
 
This assumes you can solder the uBlox module onto a PC board inside the  
analyzer yourself.
 
bye,
Said

I've  bought an Agilent N9923A portable 2 MHz to 6 GHz vector network
analyzer  which supports GPS. I assumed it had the GPS bought it, but
later found it  it needs a GPS unit with a ublox  chip set.

Are there any ones to  avoid, or which are  good?

Dave
