Standard Horizon’s GX1700 fixed-mount VHF radio comes equipped with its own internal 12-channel GPS to facilitate use of its DSC (Digital Selective Calling) features. No more having to hook up your VHF to an external GPS unit. Instead, the GX1700 is ready for everything from DSC distress calling to position sharing, way-point navigation, and navigation to DSC distress calls right out of the box. Operators can input as many as 100 waypoints, which can then be navigated to using the radio’s easy-to-read compass display, which also displays SOG, COG, bearing and distance-to-waypoint data. The GX1700 measures just under 6in across and is only 3.5in deep, making it easy to install in a crowded electrical panel. $299. Standardhorizon.com
