    you certainly can't hope to develop a device from scratch, that's way beyond the capabilities of a hobbyist

    Your only hope to get it done cheaper is to buy a bluetooth module with serial output, and then build an interface circuit to connect it to the GPS receiver. you can find such bluetooth modules for around $60.

    The interface circuit would not be a major challenge for someone with some electronics knowledge, but I don't know what your experience is...
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    What about USB-> BT? Is that a "no-go" option?
