Garmin® is the first to put the power of GPS navigation and marine VHF communication in the palm of your hand. The GPSCOM 170 provides simple, intuitive access to advanced features—without complicated programming.

Features like built-in channel usage definitions, programmable scan groups with user comment, and a line-of-sight calculator, make communication fast and simple. The 5-watt transceiver also offers all U.S., International, and Canadian marine communications channels, one-button channel 16/9 priority, and dual/tri watch functions.

More than a sophisticated VHF marine radio, the GPSCOM 170 is a high-performance GPS with a 12 parallel channel receiver for fast, accurate positioning. It also features moving map plotting and user-selectable steering guidance to make navigation easy. And it features the same simple operating system that made Garmin's GPS 45XL the best-selling marine GPS in history.
