Maxsea and USB GPS troubles

I am having trouble getting Maxsea to update my position. It is recognizing my GPS, and receiving info, but just won't update my position and give me a lat/long.

I am using Maxsea V10.1.3.2 with a Royaltek RGM-3600 USB GPS on Windows XP. The newest drivers for the GPS are installed. The users manual for the GPS says it works with NMEA 0183, which is what I have selected. It also states that the baud rate is 4800, which is what I have selected. Maxsea recognizes the GPS in serial com 4, and I have selected that as my master. When I click on the utilities tab, and go down to Data input/output settings (F4) then over to the "check data" tab, there is loads of data coming through the GPS. However the program continues to tell me that it doesn't have a position. Of course I have used it in open air, on a clear day, and still no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
