VHF Radio w. AIS receiver

Hello everyone

Quick question to you electronic types. there is a new generation of VHF radios coming onto the market that has an AIS receiver built in (eg. Standard Horizon GX2100)

Does anyone know whether these are capable of being connected to a laptop in order to have the AIS data displayed within my charting program? All my research has not come up with an answer yet.

The other option would be to get an AIS receiver (I.e. Miltech SR161) and an antenna splitter (or standalone antenna) which clearly is capable of outputting to a PC.

Many thank in advance.

Matt
