Hi.

Do you mean General Packet Radio Service or Global Positioning System?

If the former, then a lot of mobile phones can be used as modems using just the standard PPP system on Linux, with some tweaking of the scripts.
If the latter, then there are a number of GPS recievers which work with Linux, but mapping software is thin on the ground.

Don't see why not. I've done this on Orange with a Nokia connected via a serial cable before.
