Yes, this is very possible! We have a two blog posts that would probably help you get started:

This is on geocaching, which gives you the basics for using the GPS to navigate. http://www.dexterindustries.com/blog/2010/11/24/geocaching-for-einstein/

This is on the SARG: Simple Autonomous Robot GPS (SARG) where we have a video, some example programs, and a howto of a robot moving through a parking lot. http://www.dexterindustries.com/blog/2010/11/22/dexter-industries-simple-autonomous-robot-gps-sarg/

Hope that helps!
