VHF AIS Radio Recommendation

Hello. I'm looking to purchase a vhf radio nema2000 with ais for my boat. I"m looking at a Garmin 210, a Standard Horizon GX2100 and a Icom M506-21. My GPS is a Garmin 740S. Can someone recommend one of these or let me know of another I should consider. Thanks

The Standard Horizon GX2100 radio does not meet your criteria. It does not have a NMEA-2000 interface.

Also, I don't see the GX2100 listed on the manufacturer's website. It is probably an obsolete model.
