I'm not sure you will get much below USD 100, but there are other brands
available.  I've seen them advertised by small volume suppliers of
embedded system/microcontroller type hardware.  I have the feeling the 
Garmin unit is semi-consumer.

Port latency is likely to be negligible compared with the NMEA output
latency in the receiver.  It may well be small compared with the jitter
in the NMEA output.  That's why PPS is important.
