Does a Zumo 550 need a satellite antenna?

Simple question. I've seen the puck style antenna mounted with the Zumo 550. I guess I got some wrong info when someone told me the antenna for the GPS and XM is located within the unit. Do I need to get the puck? My needs are GPS, XM, and I'd like to get weather info also. Thanks.

Yes you need to get the puck. This is a external $200 "extra" part for the 550. The GPS antenna is within the unit, but if you want XM and weather, the puck is required.
