The Raymarine RS 125, their current model, is a complete receiver outputting either NMEA 0183 or SeaTalk, RM's earlier network protocol. Which mode it comes up in depends on how the power is applied to it. It is not NMEA 2000 compatible. This is a versatile, delicious GPS receiver. It interfaces very neatly via 0183 with the SR series AIS receivers to any chart plotter with 0183 input.
The Garmin HVS 17(x) is as nice a receiver and is NMEA 2000 compatible if you want to order it that way. NMEA 0183 is an option for it too and works the same way with a SR receiver. The SR accomplishes the data merge (38.4KB, AIS rate) from either source flawlessly. I use the SR101 receiver with my Garmin 12 MAP; my Garmin Geko 201; and my Magellan GPS Map Color; inputting to my HP DV1000 laptop running Fugawi ENC.
Cheap, and works very well indeed
