Angry 11 Satellites in View but no GPS

Running Openplotter with OpenCPN 5.2.4 and even though I have a clear view of the sky- I get GPS time, and I have 11 satellites in view (per the dashboard item) I have no signal being reported to the OpenCPN. Is there a setting I have to change in Signal K or something?

Re: 11 Satellites in View but no GPS

If you go into the Options area, Connections tab and "show NMEA debug window" you should be able to capture the traffic (sounds like there is some since you see number of satellites) and post a few samples here might be able to help diagnose. Looking for NMEA sentences that begin $GPGGA, $GPGSV, $GPRMC or similar ("GP" is the most likely character set for the talker ID but could be something different).
