GPS Compatibility
Your GPS needs a NMEA 0183 output and this is to be connected to your laptop via a USB to Serial converter which is available from many PC supply shops and sites.

Some GPS receivers have only a USB connection and in a marine application the use of these are limited, if your GPS falls into this category then check to see, using Windows Device Manager, if it appears as a virtual comm port; if it does then it should be compatible, if instead it appears as a USB memory device then it will not operate with the program.
