An integral 12-channel GPS in Standard Horizon’s GX1700 simplifies the radio’s digital selective calling (DSC) functions. The GX1700 stores up to 100 waypoints and has a compass display that shows SOG and COG, as well as bearing and distance to waypoint. DSC calling, position-sharing and navigation to the source of a DSC distress call can all be performed in a few simple steps. The radio’s case is only 3.5 inches deep, making it easier to install in tight spaces. A RAM3 remote microphone lets you control the radio from a second station. $229.
