Second Vote for MXA-5000
I've found the MXA-5000 to be very good unit. One really nice and often overlooked feature is that if you wire a GPS _into_ it as well, then it will repeat GPS and AIS nmea data out on a separate PC serial line. I have this wired to a bluetooth serial dongle, and so any laptop onboard can pick up the bluetooth serial connection and see realtime position and AIS data. Very handy (now if only Apple would put a non-crippled bluetooth stack on the iPhone and iPad).
