I have bought an easyAIS (art. A-013). According to the instruction sheet the cabel must be attached on a sub-D plug with 9 pins. Unfortunately my notebook has only USB-ports. Is it possible to cut a standard USB extension cable and connect the two AIS wires (NMEA out+ and NMEA out-) with the USB-cable? Which pins or cable-colours are required for the connection?
