Add a GPS module inside a MBPR

The space left inside a MBP is scarce but I believe that a tiny GPS module could fit inside. Does anyone know how it could be powered from the motherboard? The purpose would be to track back a stolen device...

Update (10/04/2017)

Unless you modify the EFI, I believe that the Find My Mac is useless if the thief has some informatics skills. And most of the 'Tiles' I am aware of are Bluetooth trackers with limited range of detection. That's why I believe that a hidden GPS module embedded in the computer and powered by its battery would be an efficient solution, provided that, of course, the case is not an obstacle to the signal transmission...

If you can't set it up with iCloud and "Find My Mac", you can insert what is called a Tile to track it:

@mayer - It may not work as the case would act as a faraday cage preventing the signal to enter (GPS) or go out (BlueTooth).

Its great for the forgetful types who put things down in the house and can't remember where. The distance between your phone & tile is somewhat limited.

I highly doubt there is a way to add a GPS module to a MacBook. If you are worrying about tracking a stolen device, Find My Mac through iCloud works fine.

Only if it connects to the internet will Find My Mac help in locating it.
