HUH??? I think you are referring to "port" the wrong way. If you mean on "NMEA 1 - In" and on "NMEA 1 - Out", that is ok. But you can not have a NMEA IN and OUT connected to another device which is just a NMEA IN. Gabbish? Or you can say it this way, you need a minimun of 3 wires connected (an in, an out and at least one ground) to do both.
