will a common GRASS monitor open? If not, then you system settings need to
be corrected. Note, that you display isosurfaces with one or more "+"

And note: There are severe bugs in the r3.* environment which need to be
fixed. Probably all coordinates are reversed and other problems may happen.

Yes, you can use NVIZ for that. It displays 3D sites.
