Not really. There is actually loads of information about the GD system, I guess it depends on what one classifies as understandable. All the GD material is open and published and is easily accessible, as is the reasoning for why it works as it does.

While I would agree that the traditional meanings are, well, meaningless, it is important to understand where they come from. Taking all the given attributions of a given card and considering them together doesn't actually give you what passes for a "meaning;" they give you the general energies of the card, its neighborhood of influence. That doesn't by any means preclude meditation and assimilation of everything about the card, quite the contrary. You still have to take astrological attributions, the Kabbalistic ones as well as the general lore of the card and its image and then make all those things mean something meaningful and adapt it to your life and situation. The method adds depth, it doesn't take away.
