Yes, the NMEA IN + wire from the VHF should connect to one pin (3 IIRC) and the NMEA OUT + wire from the VHF should connect to pin 2. The NMEA IN - and OUT - wires should connect to Pin 5.

It is too bad someone does not produce a GPS puck for this application, it could sit near the VHF and be a dedicated GPS just for this purpose.

thanks again, Bob

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
