If you fly any kind of distance and have need for accurate GPS (plane down locating or RTH etc) then you would be best to seperate them out of principle even if the frequencies and harmonics are not a real factor.
Call it best practices if you will.

Hi Ren!

Thanks...you are right! I was worried too about the GPS placement ...and in the first time (with 2.4Ghz kit) I put it far from VTX. Now with this 5.8Ghz kit I've built an FPV pod that I can move among models so I need to keep everything pretty close...well... at 5.8Ghz the VTX seems to have little effect on GPS. It finds satellites very soon (10-11 sat during flight) and the info on OSD look to me quite accurate (compared with other barometric telemetry sensor).

BTW on my MaxiSWIFT with 5.8Ghz kit I've put the GPS very very far from VTX....best practices...you never know...
