[GRASS-user] Using GRASS with GPS

I have what I thought was going to be an easy problem, but it is of 
course more complicated than I'd expected.

I need to query a GPS that is attached to my computer (by USB or 
Bluetooth) for my current location and then query a road network 
database to find the road segments within some arbitrary distance. Does 
GRASS support that kind of operation? Can anyone get me started on how 
to do it?

Thanks! It has been a while since I've done anything with GRASS and I'm 
having to re-learn much of what I used to know.

    Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of the time
    he will pick himself up and continue.              -- Winston
