    I did a quick search and found this.

    http://hkn.eecs.berkeley.edu/~casey/autoprofile/

    Description from the website.
    AutoProfile is an extension to Gaim that allows users to create customized away messages and profiles using dynamic "components" that automatically update on a regular basis. Generated text can include song names from XMMS/Winamp/iTunes, fortune quotes, computer uptime, the contents of a Web page or a text file, the output of a program, and timestamps.


    External Text (+ Winamp, XMMS, iTunes, Windows Media Player)
    First and foremost, got some automatically refreshing text that is not created by any current AutoProfile components? You don't need to write a new component to add it- the Text File component reads in data from a specified file verbatim. To ensure that nothing unexpected happens, you can limit the amount of text taken from this file.
    So what you might be able to do is create a simple app that dumps your GPS location to a text file and then that plugin will do the rest.

    Good Luck.
