Installed SeaClear II and everything is running fine now.
Care to share how you got that generic USB GPS to talk to Seaclear? I've done half a dozen things and I still get "cannot open COM PORT X" in Seaclear.

Yes, I've got and have installed the serial port emulator. No dice.

The USB GPSes give me accurate lat/lon with their rudimentary software, but I can't get Seaclear to recognize their NMEA 183 output.
