In addition to the hardcopy plots you can make with the ps.map command and its wxGUI Cartographic Composer), in GRASS 7 the d.barscale module can draw a number of styles of bar scale and north arrows directly in the live GIS display monitor; in GRASS 6.4.3+ the north arrows can be drawn on the monitor with the d.graph module or the d.mark addon module and the appropriate symbol (available with true-north rotation and line thickness settings). Style, text placement (or none), distance units, color, font, and fontsize can be controlled. Here are some examples:
