I've just had a read of the relevant manuals dan you need to connect the shield on the hds to green (ground (-)) on the VHF, also have you set the baud rate to 4800 on the gps

Another thought you have set the gps to com 1 which is the port for the yellow transmit wire on hds, com 2 uses the blue wire to transmit.

From what I've read, most people miss grounding it.
