Yes, create the connection with baud rate 4800, 8 data, no parity, 1 stop bit. 4800:8,N,1
Use the NMEA debug window to see the NMEA messages. Using USB serial ports
is not always simple because port numbers can change. OpenCPN should show you a list if available ports
. The exact comm port number may require some trial and error which is why the NMEA debug window helps.
