Within GRASS the only [published] realtime GPS software is my
m.realtime_gps for GRASS 5.3. Uses gpsd.
You may be better off using software like gpsdrive for this task.
You can export a GeoTIFF + shapefile from GRASS for a backdrop image??

Use v.in.garmin or QGIS's GPS plugin.

It isn't preloaded, but it is a prerequisite. You need to have the cs2cs
program installed to use v.in.garmin, not just libproj. Some installs of
proj may only provide the library, not the executables. Most have both.

Perhaps.. I have just updated this test in CVS:
if [ "$CS2CS" = "" ] ; then
echo "cs2cs program not found, install it first"
Which should have stopped things if cs2cs wasn't found.
