I can only get this setup to work using UI-View with the D7a in non-KISS 
Packet mode.(GPS connected D7 gps port, D7 pc port connected to laptop.)

Street Atlas v.6 doesn't see the GPS at all in this configuration.

Anyone know if you need to send a command to the D7a in packet mode
in order to enable GPS pass-through?
