Explorer GX1700W GPS Fixed Mount - White
Part #: GX1700W

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. 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. 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 GX1700 easily meets and exceeds all the new Class D DSC regulations.

Great fixed mount system.
by Roger from Farragut, Tennessee on August 24, 2015
Excellent fixed mount system to move up from non-DSC to DCS-capable. Internal GPS made it painless to implement DCS -- no need for supplemental GPS signal from another device. It fit well into a tight panel. Nice display -- which also shows Speed-Over-Ground and Course-Over-Ground along with GPS coordinates. Owners Manual is clear and comprehensive, programming is easy using the manual don't try without it. Unit does not come with the flush-mount brackets -- these need to be ordered separately - which is a real hassle and they are expensive ($17-18) these brackets are so cheap, they should come with the unit.

I boat in the gulf, what is the range I can expect this unit to transmit and receive?
Actual transmission range depends much more on antenna type, gain, and height than on the power output of the transmitter. On a fixed mount 25W radio transmission distances can be greater than 15 miles.

Does this unit come with a bracket for surface mounting?
Yes it comes with the capability to flush mount the unit.

Hi what antenna should I use with this vhf radio I have a 17ft.max please let me know so I can finsh my order thanks?
This has a built-in antenna so Standard Horizon does not have a recommended antenna.

What are the cut out dimensions for flush mounting ?
138 mm x 73 mm, or 5.4 inches x 2.9 inches.
