Hi Amila, some questions, what kind of device do you use ? What do you expect to do with the coordinates on OSM ? Why do you want them to get onto OSM ? Please read these pages with questions like yours as well. https://help.openstreetmap.org/search/?csrfmiddlewaretoken=1826df153081d3416c349485a7a8bca4&q=gps+import&Submit=Search&t=question

If you aren't tied to OpenLayers and this is for history playback (not real-time) on an OSM basemap then Leaflet.AnimatedMarker is a method. If you're looking for real-time, MapBox has something ready-made (but a GeoJSON refresh should be pretty easy in pure Leaflet).
