You don't need to setup a profile to do this. If you have location contexts setup to use GPS, Tasker will turn it on occasionally to find your location.

In the Tasker settings, under Monitor, you can set the time between GPS location checks. There are two settings, one for when the screen is off and one for what the screen is on. Click the ? buttons to get descriptions of all of them, it's helpful.

Edit: I highly recommend you don't use GPS for location contexts, unless you plan to plug your phone in multiple times during the day. It uses a lot of battery.
