I'm wondering if I can convert my old Raymarine GPS antenna to a USB connection for my PC. I'm checking one last time before I remove the whole thing and try to sell it, but some minor demolition will be required and I'd like to avoid that if I can. Any ideas welcome.

 Hi Duart,
To connect to a PC you require an antenna that networks with NMEA data. Unfortunately your existing GPS antenna cannot be converted to NMEA data. You'll need to get a new GPS antenna.
