Sending GPS Data Over Serial to a Device

I have an ACK GPS connected to EFIS PDF 1 (in a two screen system) to EFIS Serial 4 Output. The EIS is using EFIS Serial 4 Input, both at 9600b.

How do I direct NEMA GPS data to output on this port?

Set the output to "Autopilot (NMEA0183)". This includes the GPGGA message if your GPS provides altitude data.

If the ACK ELT accepts the Garmin panel mount Aviation format like many do, the EFIS can alternatively be set to "Autopilot (Aviation)" to send that format.

Worked. The E-04 was expecting 0183 and the setting change fit the bill. Thx.
