Not for most of us. Possibly if it is thick enough where you are that it also affects your view of the sky using eyeballs.

It'd have to be very very dense to affect the GPS signal. Dense enough that light transmission would be reduced.

Definitely not.
The ash particles cannot even be detected at close range by an aircraft's weather radar, so they will have no effect at all on GPS signals.
