For what it's worth, the B&G gear will probably interface just fine. I've got B&G "Network" stuff on VALIS (at least 12 years old), and two Furuno NN3D 8-inch chartplotters. You can tap off the daisy-chained B&G NMEA0183 signal and feed it to one of the 0183 inputs on the MFD. As I recall there are three 0183 inputs (and outputs) on the MFD. If you've got these all filled up, you can get a mux to combine things.
There may be good reasons to get new gear, but 0183 probably isn't one of them.
