You can use an external service, such as google maps, to convert GPS coordinates to addresses.

Yes, GPS can be accessed via the Location keyword, see https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/signals/

 

You can get the latitutude, longitude, and altitude. There is also the Compass keyword which you may find useful.

Not sure what kind of example you are after, but here is one: Create a label control, change its Text property to

 

Location.Latitude & "," & Location.Longitude

 

and it shows your current position.
