Should not be a problem, as GPS antennas do not transmit anything, they just receive.

i mount them as close as 4" to each other on tower installations. NMEA standards dictate that I should move them apart further, but I've had no issues doing it this way for the last 4 years.

I've got two Garmin antenna's on my tower wing that are 3-4" apart with no problem other than birds occasionally sit on them.
