GPS Hardware


Is there a list with supported GPS hardware for linux?
I am searching for a USB or serial card, that will communicate with ntpd and be used for getting the correct time.

Thanks

In a broad scope take a look at the ntp site for complete documentation.
http://www.ntp.org/index.html
http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/refclock.html

Any receiver that can output NMEA messages via USB or a regular serial port will work. If you are looking for microsecond precision then you will need a receiver that also has a 1 pulse per second output like:
