Mission Planner not seeing GPS

I am using a pixhawk 1 and a zed-f9p board from sparkfun. I wired the uart1 to the pixhawk gps connection and mission planner still does not see the GPS. The GPS type is on automatic. The GPS module is working in u center just not in mission planner. I am thinking I must need to change a setting somewhere just not sure what. Any help would be appreciated.
