How to send an OpenCPN GPS Route to Pypilot
Hi, I'm trying to send a GPS route to Pypilot from OpenCPN. I'm using Openplotter on a Raspberry Pi3b and have the Pypilot plugin enabled. 

I set up an input/output connection in OpenCPN to port 20220 and filtered sentences ECRMB, ECRMC and ECAPB following the instructions in the OpenCPN manual for sending an active route to an autopilot. The NMEA debugging window shows that the sentences are being sent successfully.   

In the Pypilot plugin window there is no option to navigate by GPS in the pulldown menu, only compass. Does this have to be enabled somewhere else? I couldn't figure it out. 

Thanks for the amazing work on Pypilot. It's such a great program and I can't wait to try it out on the water
