I did a similar hack for a bluetooth GPS (B-Speech GPS20c) ttl wired directly to arduino mentioned here:
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php?topic=106798.0

In running, tinygps v.12 and using sample program "test_with_gps_device".  Changing SoftwareSerial.h to _SS_MAX_RX_BUFF = 128 was not enough.  With this device and for use with this example program I had to go "256".  That's alot for the example and softserial.  I think the example should be trimmed down; who cares about the Coarse to London thing.

Now that I know everything works I'm off to write a program that won't require such a large use of RAM.  I hope this helps someone who didn't get all their data populated by using the example sketch.

Cheers!
