Re: AIS integrated into VHF Radio.

Taking it a step further, the GX2200 has both integrated GPS and AIS. They actually display a dot-matrix display on-screen, similar to a radar circle, with blips for AIS targets within a certain range. They can then be hooked up to external plotters etc for better viewing and more detail.

I'd recommend downloading the manual and reading through for more information on it (I don't have mine installed in the boat yet, so I can't really say much on it yet)
