Default new Garmin chartplotters

Will any of these units be available with an internal antenna?

Nobody knows the answer to this question? Aren't there several Garmin dealers on this forum?

According to my local WM manager (who spoke with a Garmin rep), all the new smaller units will have a standard internal antenna. It will be integrated into the case and won't stick up like the previous models. If you want to flush-mount the unit, an external antenna can be added on. Larger network modeld still use external-only.

Makes sense from a manufacturing standpoint - a single design cuts down on manufacturing, stocking, packinging, and inventory costs. Probably more than makes up for the cost of building an antenna into every unit.
