Product Description

Standard Explorer GPS VHF Marine Radio in White, model GX1700W. The New 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. The GX1700 is also capable of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints, which may be selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation compass display which shows your vessels SOG, COG, BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint. Mounting a VHF radio has never been easier. The Explorer GX1700 has an ultra thin, compact rear case, only 3.5" in depth, or half the depth of comparable VHF radios on the market. The rear case design also grants flexibility when flush mounting the radio in tight areas or saves dash space when bracket mounted, allowing you more freedom when choosing a location to mount your radio. Features include: Class D DSC (Digital Selective Calling), navigation to a DSC Distress Call with compass page, DSC test call, Auto DSC channel change selection, automatically poll the GPS position of up to 4 ships using DSC, Enter, Save, and Navigation to waypoint with Compass page, GPS Compass display, navigation (LAT/LON, SOG, and COG) information shown on display, submersible JIS-8 1.5M (4.92Ft) for 30 minutes, noise canceling microphone with channel UP/DOWN, 16/9 and H/L keys, NOAA weather channel selection with alert, Programmable Scan-Priority Scan-Dual Watch, GPS repeating of position/SOG/COG and time, customizable channel names, oversized dot matrix display, NMEA input and output, programmable soft keys, capable of connecting to a Second Station RAM3 Remote Access Microphone, die-cast chassis, 3 Year Waterproof Warranty. In the box: Explorer VHF, mounting bracket and power cord, installation hardware, owner's manual. 7"W x 3.1"H x 5.7"D; Wt.: 2.2 lbs.

Great product easy instillation .
Neil Andre L Lallkissoon
Eliminates the need for wiring from VHF to chartplotter so that DSC works.

Having another easy to read GPS turned out to be a big plus too.

I chose this radio over the slightly cheaper ones for the built in gps. If you have a stand alone gps unit, i guess you wouldnt need this particular model, but im on a no-frills 17' bw newport and i tend to fish alone or with folks that arent familiar with using vhf radios, so i like the idea that if something were to happen, i can flip a switch and my location and id are sent immediately. I used a gam 3' steel whip antenna on a 4' extension mounted to an ss flip up mount on the wraparound rail by my console and so far i've picked up crystal clear transmission and reception at 20 miles away during a radio check and coast guard chatter that is further. One thing to note about the display is that you need a fairly straight ahead view of the radio. I originally planned on mounting it to the front of my console, but it was unreadable at an angle.

performs as designed and the integrated gps is a great safety feature. I own several of this brand and they stand up to heavy use.

great little radio. works great. i hear radios 20 miles away without switching to high power (6 ft antenna mast). I registered it and hope i never have to uise the DSC distress call but nice knowing my gps location will be sent automatically and coast guard amongst other dsc radio user should receive it.

The radio is all that I expected it to be and then some. For single handed sailing on Lake Superior it is ideal.

This vhf is the best I've ever owned. Built in GPS AIS and DSC all have great utility. Reception and broadcast, when coupled to a sheaksphere 5225 antenna is first rate. Having another easy to read GPS turned out to be a big plus too. Now I can see course and speed in daylight hours without reading glasses.

Still trying to learn the DSC and AIS functions. To have all in one is a huge step forward in marine electronics. And right now you may still get the $30 refund. I'm really pleased and glad I stepped up....

I like this radio a lot but the GPS receiver just doesn't work where we have it mounted. It is lower in the dash than we would like but it seems like it should still get signal there. Make sure it has a clear view of the sky where you mount it. If you can't do this, it isn't the radio for you. Next time I will buy an NMEA 2000 radio that gets it's signal from the network.
