NMEA out to display

Hi, When using a route (in OpenCPN) I would like to sent the route information like bearing, VMG, distance to next, COG, SOG from OpenCPN to an external display via the NMEA0183 network.
In my case the Windows PC is connected via USB to a ShipModul Miniplex 2 USB, which is the concentration point for Seatalk (incl Raymarine ST6001 autopilot), AIS and NASA Yacht repeater.
My GPS is a receiver only, it does not have waypoint or route information.
To feed the NASA Yacht repeater I need the output from OpenCPN.
Can anyone tell if it is possible to sent these data from OpenCPN into the network?

Thanks in advance

Re: NMEA out to display

Certainly,

just check the chapter about communication from the documentation.
From your install (the ? button from the tools) or at opencpn.org
OCPN has a quite sophisticated multiplexer built in.

You are running OCPN 4.0 aren't you?

Thanks a lot, It feels stupid, but I did not see the scroll down bar at the right side of the screen.
