Default Simrad GO9 XSE Bundle Question

Just recently Purchased the Simrad GO9 XSE Bundled w/Radar/Plotter/GPS/TotalScan Transducer/Navionics + Mapping. I'm wanting to Overlay the Radar, so that I wont have to have (2)Separate Screens. System comes w/an Internal & External GPS Antenna but my question is, will I need anything else or another Antenna to Overlay the Radar? I've been told that I'll prob. need the GS25 & Starter Kit (+/-$275.00). Is this correct and if so, is there anything else on the Market that could be a CHEAPER Solution by chance? Any input would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Correct, a heading compass is required for radar overlay. GS25 and the Lowrance version Point-1 are the cheapest options. A NMEA 2000 starter kit is also needed.

Which external GPS antenna do you have? GS25 is a combined GPS and heading sensor and is the only external Simrad GPS available.

When you get this in front of you, let us know what "external gps" you get.
