HELP Reading gps data in direct connect mode

Hallo, I have any adafruit ultimate gps logger shield, it works fine in software serial mode. I need it to work in direct connect mode, since i have another sensor using SoftwareSerial and arduino uno cannot manage 2 software serial together. I switch the shield to direct connect and it output the strings correctly, but I am not able to Read it from the serial monitor. Can someone help me? Thanks!
