SH Explorer GX1700B, Great Buy July 24, 2013
Reviewer: John from Duluth, Mn  
Ordered the Standard Horizon through Hodges Marine, and couldn't be happier.  Ordering was easy, the price was about the cheapest I could find anywhere, and upon receiving the order, the product was well protected inside the shipping container.

Great tiny VHF marine radio June 29, 2013
Reviewer: Garrett Odell from Friday Harbor, WA  
The Gx1700b radio arrived quickly, installed easily, and works flawlessly so far. It is very small, loud when you turn the volume up, and has every feature imaginable. It seems utterly waterproof. The screen is easy to read in bright sun or at night. The built-in GPS is primitive (no maps) but effective in navigating to already-marked locations. A beep of ever-increasing volume alerts you to weather warnings regardless of what channel you are listening to. I hope I never have to try the one-button automated mayday  that sends out your GPS coordinates along with the distress call. The one distressing thing about this, and all modern marine radios, is that you can get a FREE MMSI number (on line), which such radios require to activate automated distress calls, only if you stay in U.S. waters. If you have any international destinations in mind, you cannot get a free MMSI number, but must instead apply for various licenses for which the fees add up to more than the cost of the radio.

Great Radio for the Money June 25, 2013
Reviewer: Tim from Great Salt Lake, UT  
This VHS is a good value.  Mid-line, it has great features, such as DSC and a built-in GPS.  Having a second GPS aboard is comforting should one be knocked out in an emergency.  The speaker is loud and clear, functions logical and easy to access, screen easy to read.  Installed flush in the below deck Nav Station, the GPS still tracks without an external antenna.  Overall a well thought out and quality product.

VHF Radio June 5, 2012
Reviewer: Johnny from Louisiana  
Radio seems to be first quality and got a fix very fast, even under my hardtop. Easy to hook up due to the plugs furnished with the radio.
