I am not 100% clear on the commands you used, but..
'v.to.points -v' to get end nodes as points, then upload values to them?
line nodes can not have attributes, only lines. e.g. in the v.in.garmin
script for each track it labels the line with a start_time, end_time,
start_lat, start_lon, end_lat, end_lon. (lat/lon so you can figure

v.distance is correct. "upload=" looks for the nearest feature.
Many vector modules require that features have category numbers to work.
I take it you know start/end times and will interpolate intermediate
postions and times?
see also Radim's v.lrs.* modules, new in CVS.
