Instrument Data on OpenCPN Via NMEA

Im wondering if there is a way I can view in OpenCPN intsrument data like depth, speed, wind etc? I have a way to connect my PC to my instruments that should allow me to get NMEA data to the PC Im just wondering where in OpenCPN I would see the data? Is there a tab or screen?

Yes, the Dashboard plugin. Check in tools, the plugins tab, it may be there already and just needs check boxed.
