The GX1700 makes DSC easy. With an internal 12-channel GPS built into the radio, there is no need to hassle with wiring the radio to a GPS for DSC. Out of the box and ready to go, with DSC calling, position sharing, waypoint navigation and navigation to DSC distress calls with just a few simple steps. Enter and save up to 100 waypoints, which may be selected and navigated to using a unique navigation compass display that shows your vessel’s SOG, COG, BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint. Ultra thin, compact rear case, only 3 1/2" in depth or half the depth of comparable VHF radios. Accept a RAM3 Remote Access Microphone allowing full control of all radio and DSC functions from a second station. With oversized full dot matrix display, user selectable Programmable Scan, Dual Watch, Ch16 Priority Scan, user changeable channel names, NOAA weather with alert, dedicated preset channel, dedicated CH16/9 keys and three programmable soft keys. The microphone uses ClearVoice noise reduction technology to cut wind and engine noise while transmitting.

    Comments about Standard Horizon GX1700 Compact VHF with GPS, Black:

    Hooked this radio to a SHAKESPEARE
    Galaxy 5225-XT in an older 19 foot center console.
    My first radio check was from inside Mission Bay, San Diego, Ca and someone responded
    from Santa Monica, Ca. (119 Miles) He said he could hear me clearly and I hit him back a few more times
    just to double check the new radio. Now I can hear a lot more radio traffic (not sure that's a good thing tho..
    Also radio check Channel 27 from the 9 mile bank and works perfectly.

    The only bad part is now I have to remove the radio so no one steals it.

    Remember don't cut the cable supplied with your antenna, just loop it and zip tie off the excess. Its tuned to that length. Dont skimp on a life saving device, you might need it some day!
