Default Mounting Bosch table router

I have just purchased a Bosch package including the router, plunge base and table.
The manual refers to a table base that can stay on the table.
My question is could I not do this with the fixed base that comes with this kit and then use the plunge base when I route without a table?
This is my first plunge router and I have limited experience.

sure just plunge down and do the work. No different than a fix. Just lock the router down . to the depth you want.

Ralph, mount your fixed base to the table. The handles can be removed for more access to the controls, in fact the table base is a fixed base with no handles. If you have other questions on your 1617 feel free to PM me.

Thanks for your response. I thought that would be the way to go but wanted to be sure.
