Connecting OpenCPN autopilot output via USB into data plug for ST3000 autopilot

I have OpenCPN on my computer and use a GlobalSat USB GPS to access the GPS signal and now I want to send the signal from the OCPN charted waypoints via a USB port into the ST3000 autopilot.

Is there a USB 2 wire connector available to connect the data from the OCPN into the data plug for the autopilot.

Thanks, Jim

I think the NMEA0183 spec call for RS422 signal levels. I have a USB to RS422/485 converter connected between my computers usb port and my my Raymarine 4000 NMEA0183 connections and it works well. The converter I have is made by Digitech.
