So the USB GPS receive I ordered arrived some time ago... only recently had a chance to have a look.
It almost works BUT there is an issue with "system gps monitor" not showing the longitude.
Checking the RAW serial output from the GPS module it is getting a fix and showing the longitude.

I'm in the process of looking at how I can send the location to a server using scheduler, fetch and php. This will insert the location and date stamp into a mysql database once working.
Then to work out how I get this displaying on google maps...
