GPS USB connector to VHF

I want to connect a GPS with a USB connector to a Raymarine 55 VHF. The manual for the Ray55 just shows a NMEA bare two wire connection for input and a two wire NMEA output connection. How do you interface the VHF with a GPS that has a cable with a USB connector ?

I have a Garmin Map76Cx. Can this gps display position data for a received DSC call if the 2 NMEA out wires are connected to the GPS ?

I would really like to just connect a puck type of GPS with this radio what is available ? any I have seen have a USB connector. Would a MS streets&trips GPS work ?
