Autopilot, DMK to USB

I have two questions:

1. Is it possible to sent waypoint data from a laptop or iPAD through the DMK-box to an autopilot? I have a Raymarine ST4000+. I know this question has been up before. Is it still work in progress?

2. Can I connect the DMK-box directly to a Mac laptop by a NMEA to USB adapter (yellow cable)?. This for example:

Thank you for a great product and good support!

    Hello Johan,

    Waypoint data back to an autopilot is still not enabled. If it is then it will use the yellow cable on the box.

    For question 2 I'm not sure why you would need to do this. My recommendation would be to turn on another data stream from the box and connect the Mac via WiFi to its own IP address.
