Today, nearly ALL small faceless "puck" type GPS units, and consumer 
display-type GPS units now have USB interfaces rather than serial.

Two of the few that still have the RS-232 serial interface that you MUST have 
for use with the Kenwoods or common trackers are:

The Argent Data ADM-GM1 - $45.00

The Byonics Byonics GPS5 - $69

On Amazon.com  GlobalSat 07-BR-355-S4 GPS Receiver - $38.18

Note that this unit has a mini-DIN plug on the end of it's cable. You will have 
to make up another cable to separate the serial data out and the 5 VDC power in.
