This is not bash, but python, and it need lib_pyfso_gobject import. The 
good part is that it use fso-frameworkd

But I think it can help:

from lib_pyfso_gobject import *
import gtk

usage     = OUsaged()
gps        = OGpsd()


def on_gps_fix(status):
     print "Fix status: " + str(status)

def on_gps_position(fields, tstamp, lat, lon, alt):
     print '-' * 10
     print 'Lat: ' + str(lat)
     print 'Log: ' + str(lon)
     print 'Alt: ' + str(alt)

gps.connect('fix-status-changed',    on_gps_fix)
gps.connect('position-changed',        on_gps_position)
