    Hi, I am trying to build a project which will fetch the device's current location (lat and long) and POST (Http Post) it to a Server. I have been studying about the various options in choosing a gps module. My requirement and belief is that I can bring down the cost of the project below 20$ during production. I have experience of doing only two small projects in embedded systems in which I needed to wire up LCDs, buttons and LEDs to a PIC. I am completely new to this world.
    In my research (in internet) I could find only GPS modules which costs about 40$. Can anyone please suggest me a cost effective GPS solution that I can connect to a Micro controller.

    How would $14 suit you?
