Probably a bit late, but the GR-601W (code name MACX-1) from

them, cost $49 ish in small quantity plus shipping)
I have a couple of these. They have a built in USB to serial adaptor,
but with the PPS attached to the correct lines. Obviously because you
are using USB you now have a max accuracy limited by the USB polling
speed which is about 1ms. However, for a simple plug-in and works out
of the box device it's pretty nice. I have a couple here, I could
probably arrange to setup a Chrony feed if someone wants to examine
the stability externally?
Another idea I had (but never completed) is that I have a few Garmin
18 devices. I was going to splice a serial port and USB cable together
to give power to the Garmin 18... (if you don't need the accuracy
better than 1ms you could attach it to a butchered serial to usb adaptor)
I got a "Globalsat Timing 1pps GPS Module MTK MT3301 MT3179 Chip" from
ebay. Not a bad price, and seems pretty solid. It's ttl level, so you
need a max232 or similar chip to match TX, RX, and DCD.
Don't have it hooked up completely yet - turns out I'm missing the
correct gender serial null modem cable parts - so as soon as that gets
here I will hook it up.
PPS does work; at least gpsd sees it.
