Re: Laptop as a Chart Plotter

I have a "A" Series Raymarine Chartplotter in the cockpit with Raymarine Instrumentation and the Raymarine Class B AIS. I would like to also setup a Navigation Computer at the Nav Station with possibly MaxSea Nav software. How do I connect the computer to the NMEA 0183 network? Or am I better off just connecting the laptop to an independent handheld GPS?
