Was just going to mention this; I've been using it with the cheap U-Blox 6 based chips and it works like a charm.

It may be worth including in the default airframes which use the ublox GPS subsystem, unless there is a particular reason not to?

If you have a ublox I would recommend to use

  <load name="gps_ucenter.xml" />

This module has auto-baudrate, and configures all message rates and
communication ports. (it does not change the filter mode, or functional GPS
settings, only communication stuff: so it is always safe to use).

The module will send a DEBUG message that indicates the firmware version in
your GPS, the previously selected GPS baudrate and the current (38k4).

Trying to get my RC working I have noticed that I cannot switch modes.
Once I open the ground control station, it always stays as auto 2. I think this may be related to the fact that it doesn't identify any GPS signal and it works in a kind of failsafe mode automatically, can this be the reason? There is also an error in the Paparazzi Center saying "Unix.Unix_error(2,
"read", "")". How can I get my GPS working? I have configured it with
U-center and everything is ok, however, it never works when connected to
