How can I read NMEA from U-Center without Arduino in realtime?

I’m trying to understand how I can read data from u-center to use in for example python. Currently i have this configurated: UBX-CFG-PRT the target is SPI. protocol in and out are 0+1 – UBX+NMEA+RTCM3. How does the target affect the reading of NMEA data? I am using NTRIP corrections.

I’ll take a stab at this and probably say it all wrong.  🙂
You can only get UBX strings/data from tx1, i2c, or spi from the “standard” configs.  Not sure if we can actually turn on UBX out from tx2.
Not quite sure what you mean by “how does that target affect the reading of NMEA data.” 
NTRIP corrections help make your absolute locations more accurate, with fewer variations in positioning.
If I am understanding any of your q.
Btw, I personally like I2C much more than SPI, fwiw.
