That's a great questions. Especially since once company, Standard Horizon, makes those combos.

DSC VHF radio with a GPS
Welcome to StandardHorizon.com
That model doesn't have the AIS receiver.

The AIS version doesn't have integrated GPS. It's not really a big deal because connecting the two is pretty simple. And now there are VHF radios with NMEA 2000 interfaces so it's really just plug and play.
