Even the Rockwell/Connexant Jupiter GPS receivers have carrier phase
However you will need to replace the 10.95MHz crystal with a 10.95Mhz
source phase locked to the OCXO being disciplined.
The 3.3V version of this module has been available at very low cost from
time to time on ebay.
Whilst not suitable for production purposes they should be more than
adequate for experimental purposes.
