Default Nmea 0183

If two components are both speaking this language, then it should not matter what brand name they are, as far as being compatible correct?

And if they have the same baudrate, there should be no problem

Hardware wise yes. Software wise not necessarily. Unless the components share specific protocols they won't "talk" to each other.

the communications layer will be compatible, but the UI (user interface) will vary from vendor to vendor.

For example, my Garmin 4210 will automatically put a DSC position reply on my chart and show it as a flag. (can change the icon if you want). My friends Raymarine c80 pops up a data table with the DSC contact's info and you have to press a softkey to put the point on the display. They both exchange NMEA 0183 data successfully, but each vendor's unit has different software that varies how it treats the data.
