I'm running pygps over gpsd to have access to my Linux iPAQ's Navman
sleeve.  pygps keeps a log of every location reported by the gps
receiver (every two seconds).  That log is stored in an ASCII file,
one location per line.  A very simple awk script could separate it out
into whatever file format grass needed.
