Easy DSC & Installation
The GX1700 makes DSC easy. With an internal 12 Channel GPS built into the
front panel, there is no need to hassle with wiring the radio to a GPS for
DSC. Out of the box and ready to go, DSC calling, position sharing, waypoint navigation, navigation to DSC distress calls can all be performed with just a few simple steps.

Mounting a VHF radio has never been easier. The Explorer GPS has an ultra
thin, compact rear case, only 3.5" in depth or half the depth of comparable
VHF radios on the market.

The Built-In WAAS GPS reciever and antenna mounted in the front panel also
gives the flexibility to flush mount the radio in tight areas.

GPS Compass - Navigate to Waypoints
The GX1700 is capable of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints. These
waypoints may be selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation
compass display that shows your vessels SOG, COG, BRG (Bearing) and DST
(Distance) to the waypoint with the internal 12 channel WAAS GPS.

ITU-R M493-11 Class D Digital Selective Calling
The GX1700 is an ITU-R M493 Class D class VHF with a separate Channel 70
receiver, which allows DSC calls to be received even when listening to
communications.

The DSC DISTRESS function when activated transmits a digital MAYDAY
including vessel identification, Latitude / Longitude and time (with GPS
connected), to facilitate prompt response. Additional calls that can be made
are Individual, Urgency, Safety, Position Report and Send.

RAM3 2nd Station Mic Capable
Need to remotely control the VHF from your cockpit of fly bridge? The GX1700
is RAM3 remote mic capable to control all VHF, DSC functions at a second
station.

Big, Bold Display
There is no question about it. With a big, bold display there is no
mistaking the information. The contrast and brightness can be adjusted for
situations where the radio cannot be mounted directly in front of you.

DSC Position Polling & NMEA In/Output
Easily share position information with other DSC equipped vessels using the
position request and position reporting functions. With the push of a few
buttons you can request the position of another vessel, or simply send your
position information to the vessel you select.

The GPS Position of a received DSC Distress or Position Request call can be
shown on a compatible GPS Chart plotter simply by connecting 2 NMEA wires.

In addition, the GX1700 may be setup to automatically poll the GPS position
of up to 4 stations.

Programmable Scan, Priority Scan and Dual Watch
Scanning is not an issue with the GX1700 The radio can be setup to scan any
number of channels with or without a Channel 16 as the priority channel or simply can be setup to scan between a priority channel and one other channel
(dual watch).

Clearvoice noise reduction technology
The GX1700 features Clear Voice Noise Reduction Technology eliminating
unwanted background noises like engines and wind during transmission. This
assures transmissions are crystal clear along with dedicated 16/9, H/L keys
and channel selection.

Programmable Channel Names
The GX1700 is supplied from the factory preloaded with description of the
use of Marine channels (16-Distress, 22A-USCG, 71-Pleasure...). The channel
names may be customized to easily understand the use of each channel.

NOAA Weather channels and Weather Alert
10 NOAA and Canadian Weather channels are pre-programmed and easily
selectable using the dedicated WX key. In addition, the GX1700 can be set to
monitor WX channels and provide an audible alert to inform of pending storm
advisories.

3-Year Waterproof Warranty
If the GX1700 fails for any reason (including water damage) during normal
use for the first 3 years of ownership, STANDARD HORIZON will repair or
replace it free, without hassles or charges. If it fails for anytime
thereafter in normal use, for as long as the original purchaser owns the
radio, STANDARD Horizon's Lifetime Flat Rate and Customer Loyalty Service Programs will cover it.

GX1700w December 29, 2012
Reviewer: Mark C from Ford City, PA  
Great idea to add GPS to a DSC radio. Not sure how it will wrok until spring here in PA. Not worried since it has a 3 year warranty. Hodges had best price and great service.

VHF radio October 25, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fayetteville, NC 28348  
This radio has it all ... its easy to use, its easy to install and it sounds great even when underway. I feel safe knowing that it has a distress signal button that is actually activated w/GPS in case of an emergency. I'm very satisfied with this radio.
