AIS Receiver installation

I have just bought a new AIS Receiver - MXA-5000 and am trying to hook it up to my PC. MY PC uses C-map.

I installed everything according to the instructions that came with the instrument. When I connect the AIS receiver to my computer and my VHF antenna, the AIS power light comes on but I don't receive any data on C- map. (nothing comes up on the screen).

What could be the problem?
Do I need to install a program to interface between the AIS receiver and C-map?
