I don't believe any of the small, internal antenna units can handle the radar input... also, the screen on most of them is too small for it to be feasible, since the radar and GPS split the screen IIRC.
Nothing says that the "external" antenna has to be mounted any specific distance from the chartplotter unit. No reason I can think of that you couldn't install the GPS mushroom right on the mounting bracket that you use for the chartplotter itself.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
