On my boat, I use A Serial port for GPS data ( from Furuno GP30). The others instruments (Depth, speedo, wind) are on a NMEA2000 Network. I use a NMEA2000 to NMEA 183 converter but I can't see them on DashBoard Plugin because Open CPN manage just one port for data (exepting AIS of course). I'm not sure if this is a core problem of OpenCPN or a specific one of Dashboard Plugin.
Sorry for may bad English, I'm French!!!
