If the GPS has a built-in aerial, does that mean the unit cannot be flush mounted?

Hadn't thought of that - depends on the design I suppose - would still be ok with signal - they work in a car!!!

You would need the built-in aerial to have a clear unobstructed view of the sky. You're right that flush mounting could be a challenge - a friend of mine managed a flush mount using a custom made kit which wasn't so much flush as surface mount!

Our own chartplotter has the aerial mounted only a few inches away from the unit, built into the top of the console. It works well, but doesn't work with a mobile 'phone placed on top of it.
