The FA-150 AIS includes an internal GPS receiver that provides COG and SOG and positioning data if no external positioning equipment is connected.  The GPS receiver also provides UTC reference for system synchronization.  You can combine GPS and VHF or use as separate antennas to get the best performance in places where there is noise from other radio equipment, like radar and satellite phones.
