Wheelpilot and NMEA

I have a Com-Pac 27 with a set of Navman Instruments wind, Depth, Speed and Chart GPS. I''m looking at a Raymarine ST4000+ or Simrad autopilot. Will it work well or should I go with the Navman G-Pilot that supposedly fully integrates. The G-pilot is an underdeck model at 4 times the cost. I do mainly protected bay sailing. I''ve read the st4000 manual and it seems to be able to do what I want. Does anyone have expierience in interfacing to the autopliots via NMEA 183 that can shed some light on what I should do.

Wheelpilot and NMEA

I installed the 4000 in 2002. After a year went by I got curious about interfacing with the old GPS (installed below decks), so I temporarily wired my Garmin 183 to the 4000. It worked! So, I hard-wired the units and now the 4000 displays ground speed as well as follows a defined route.

I have an ST1000 that I wish to interface with the Nobeltec system on my PC. The ST1000 has NMEA inputs, but how do I create NMEA outputs from the PC?
