Thanks Donna, but I can find no notation to that effect...

I believe that PolarView NS will work if you download and install PolarCOM.

PolarCOM is a FREE, but separate, download. Here is the description;
PolarCOM was developed to be an integrated NMEA 0183 marine navigation instrument data bridge and multipurpose data display. It combines background server operation with high quality easy to read and fully customizable digital instrument views, complementary to a chart display of PolarView.

PolarCOM can bridge any NMEA 0183 compatible data. It will understand and display data based on following sentences: GLL,GGA,GSA,GSV,VTG,RMC,DBT.
Available instrument types include:
- GPS position
- Speed Over Ground
- Course Over Ground (True)
- Course Over Ground (Magnetic)
- Depth Below Transducer
- Time of Day
- GPS Satellite Status
Here are some key features of "PolarCOM":
Support for multiple NMEA 0183 data sources and instrument types
TCP and UDP network server support permits sharing your NMEA 0183 data with network-enabled navigation software
NMEA data logging and replay capability
Customizable set of digital instruments for data display, providing virtually infinite combinations of views
