I have that radio and like it a lot, although I never tried the position request. I use the ram mic on my binnacle and it displays the AIS targets as well .... in impressive detail. I connected it to a Garmin 546 plotter for enhanced AIS information. The Garmin displays more targets and more information on them than the VHF, although the VHF alone is adequate. The GPS signal is connected through a switch to the VHF from either the 546 or my masthead Furuno GPS antenna.

Never sail closer to the wind in degrees than your age
