Yep, USB on the go support is built into Android.'s a question of if your version of Android has the drivers for the specific GPS device you'd be attaching... Or just use a blue tooth device.  Iirc, blue tooth devices may actually mount as devcies (like /dev/ devices) on Android. You could point gpsd to it in that case.

If you don't actually need nmea, and just want a location (so that when Android queries for Fine Location the device gets used), I'm sure there are 3rd party devices that will work over Bluetooth.

Why not just attach a GPS to the tablet?  You can either connect
with USB or Bluetooth.  There are many Android programs that can use
either of those.
