Navman gps

Just got a refurbed Navman Tracker 5500 to replace my damaged one. Plugged it in to existing cables but the navman DCS radio won't display its position. Is there something in the menu that needs to be switched on.... searched but couldn't find anything. Not sure if there's a wire connection missing but hoping there's something in the menu that's an easy fix as the wiring underneath is a bit of a mess... Though I suppose I should really tidy it up

In Setup menu there is an Autopilot setting that turns ON/OFF NMEA output.
That could be it.
White wire out signal
Black Negative.
Seem to remember when I installed mine that Black and Screen had to be connected together.

It's a second hand boat so presume the radio is registered, haven't re-registered with Ofgem yet. Will have to go through menu on radio and get the number so that I can register it in my name.
