To work with your bluetooth adapter (which only has one serial input line) you'd need to configure the radio at 38400. If you configure it for 4800 then you won't get the AIS sentences, only the DSC ones. This is on page 16 of the manual...
You are reading the wrong manual. This guy has a HX 851. You should do your homework before misleading him any more.

As for the GX 2100, your argument that sending different sentences outputs is incorrect. I have it working perfectly with 2 Bluetooth adapters. Click the link that I showed above to see how.
