JRC-850 Sounder to Cmap laptop

I have an old japan radio company sounder with gps input and a laptop with cmap installed. Currently able to send NMEA data to laptop via usb to serial cable. using hyperterminal I am able to get the following nmea output strings from the com port.
$SDBWC,003355,4259.91,S,14723.22,E,,,145,M,007.1,N ,0000
$SDRMB,A,2.53,L,0000,0000,4259.91,S,14723.22,E,007 .15,159,-01.0,V*12
$SDRMC,003355,A,4253.21,S,14719.76,E,01.1,327,2308 89,14,E*68

Have tried setting cmaps config.exe - "nmea config tab" to gps-com4-RMC and numerous other different combinations but on opening cmap no lat/long is displayed, if I unplug com port then try to open cmap says unable to open port so cmap is seeing the port and I know the data in above format is being input to com port (com port settings are correct ie baud at 4800,8,1 etc). Ready to jump overboard, any help greatly appreciated.
