Can anyone help me with the config on the software

signal on the laptop
and other instruments)
I use USB to DB9 adaptor. It is on port 9. Do I setup the AP on the same port?
Also is the AP listen to nmea or send nmea?
Unless your laptop is connected to an NMEA multiplexer device for getting GPS coordinates, you will need a second USB-DB9 adaptor to connect to the NMEA port on your autopilot.
If you could describe your navigation
setup in a bit more detail, we could help you further. For instance, if your GPS receiver is connect via SeaTalk
and not NMEA to your autopilot, it may be possible for the autopilot itself to act as an NMEA forwarder, enabling you to get by with a single
connection to your laptop. However, Nobeltec may not support talking to an autopilot on the same port as the GPS. You may need two ports
