To easily see the NMEA sentences, just configure hyperterm for 4800 baud, 8 bits, 1 stop, no parity, no flow control.

As far as extracting specific data in the sentences, and acting upon it, well that is up to your custom program. First thing to do is to parse the data; Try Googling for NMEA GPS Parsing examples. Here is a start: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/Blue..._-_NMEA_Parsing
