The only thing I know of which is close is the GPX file reader provider extension. You can find it here: http://www.codeplex.com/SharpMap/Wiki/View.aspx?title=GPX%20Provider&referringTitle=Extensions.

CodeProject has a nice article about using GPS with .Net: http://www.codeproject.com/vb/net/WritingGPSApplications1.asp.

Looks like you'll have to come up with the serial port reading code yourself, though. With the .Net 2.0 System.IO.Ports.SerialPort class, this should be almost trivial.
