Portable GPS and Field Maps on Android

We are using Field Maps on surface laptops (non-lte version) and there are a few things that we still need to iron out. One of them is that the laptop doesn't come with integrated GPS antenna. Hence, we figured to use a usb style GPS but it seems like Field Maps only accepts the bluetooth version of GPS.

We came across this list of compatible GPS antennas: https://doc.arcgis.com/en/field-maps/ios/help/high-accuracy-data-collection.htm but all of them are big. We just want something that's small, sleek and somewhat accurate. Any thoughts?

I appreciate it.

Garmin GLO is on the list and is a small bluetooth receiver. I wouldn't necessarily call that a "high accuracy" device, but it would likely be comparable to an internal GNSS receiver found in a tablet.
