Default Connecting Garmin GPS to VHF Radio

The issue below came up on another thread regarding Garmin VHF radios.

It was stated that with a "Garmin VHF and Garmin MFDs, you can place DSC calls from the plotter screen. If you add AIS, you can place calls to AIS targets with a few button pushes."

Can a Garmin 5212 or other newer type MFDs be integrated with non-Garmin VHF to achieve the same capability?

thanks in advance.

As long as the VHF that is connected to the Garmin is connected via 0183 or NMEA200 you can transmit the calls from the plotter screen. It will work regardless of the VHF brand on the network.

Anyone know the wire colors that go from Garmin (1040) to Standard Horizon VHF?
