Assume that you are using the USB cable described in accessories for this GPS
Install the gpsd and gpsd-clients packages
sudo apt-get install gpsd gpsd-clients
Go to Options-> Connections-> Add Conection and select "Network" plus the GPSD radio
button. Address should be "localhost" and DataPorts should be set to 2947. Press ok, and it should work.
