Pins 11 and 12 seem to be the best bet. I would connect DMK's
black and white ground wires to the "return" and DMK's Green wire
to the NMEA Out. If that doesn't work move the ground wires to the
power ground on the server.
HI Kevin, I have a DMK with GPS. If you recall the first one I had needed
to be returned. I've run into another problem. Was able to get the second
box wired and working with little difficulty about 2 months ago. Last week
it stopped working altogether--doesn't light up at all. I've rechecked all
the connections and they are all good.
I have it wired to my other electronics (a silva nexus system) which is protected by a 1 Amp fuse in addition to a circuit breaker—should the DMK box be separately protected with its own fuse and if so what amperage?

I amp fuse should have been fine. When the box does not light up like that
it means the voltage regulator has failed. This doesn't happen often but
it happens enough we want to figure out why. The most important thing to
do is to make sure the unused wires to not touch each other and that the
black and white are both used at grounds. I one amp fuse should protect it
from other shocks and the box is pretty robust against spikes.
