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.
