Well its not under $400, as they sell at $499, but I have got
a u-blox  Antaris GPS EvalKit running with NTP 4.2.0a and a
Linux-nano patched kernel.
You can easily order it using their online shop.
It works well with the GPS-NMEA driver and it produces
a 1 PPS on the DCD line. This is what I get with it:
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter
*GPS_NMEA(0) .GPS. 0 l 12 64 377 0.000 -0.094 0.001
