I'm new to Ubuntu and I couldn't find anything about an internal gps for a laptop. I have a 12" Hanspree netbook with an empty internal miniPCI slot and I'd like to make this my onboard chart plotter for sailing. My chart plotting software is OpenCPN and can accept a gps signal.

Now the question is, can I just plug in a GPS module into the port and the OS will recognize it? It looks like I may still need an external antenna, should I just get a usb GPS receiver?
