Dear Tom,

By gdb, I suppose you mean Garmin's GDB format:
http://www.gpsbabel.org/htmldoc-development/fmt_gdb.html

QGIS can display gps data using the GPX format, you can convert the
gdb file into GPX format using the GPS Tools plugin.  The conversion
from other format to GPX is under the "Import other" tab.  After the
import, you can view the GPX files using the same plugin under the
"Load GPX" tab.

If you need more power with transforming your gdb files to other GPS
formats, I suggest you try GPSBabel.
