Precautions for Safety

Notations used within this User's Manual

The lightning flash with the arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user about the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance.

Always operate the vehicle in a safe manner. Do not become distracted by the vehicle while driving and always be fully aware of all driving conditions. Do not change settings or any functions. Pull over in a safe and legal manner before attempting such operations. To promote safety, certain functions are disabled unless the parking brake is on.

To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove the cover or back of this product. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.

To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this product to dripping or splashing water, rain, or moisture.

When driving your vehicle, be sure to keep the volume of the unit low enough to allow you to hear sounds coming from the outside.

Do not drop it and avoid heavy impacts at anytime.

The driver should not watch the monitor while driving. If the driver watches the monitor while driving, it may lead to carelessness and cause an accident.

  • Don’t use a mobile phone when you are driving. You must stop at a safe place to use a mobile phone.

  • The use of the navigation radio doesn't mean it relieves the driver of his/her responsibilities. The highway code must always be observed. Always observe the current traffic situation.

  • The applicable traffic regulations and the prevailing traffic situation always take precedence over the instructions issued by the navigation system if they contradict one another.

  • For traffic safety reasons, use the navigation system menus only before starting a journey or when the vehicle is stationary.

  • In certain areas, one-way streets, turn-off and entry prohibitions (e.g. pedestrian zones), the navigation system will give a warning. Pay particular attention to these kind of cases.

  • The navigation system does not take the relative safety of the suggested routes into consideration: Road blocks, building sites, height or weight restrictions, traffic or weather conditions or other influences which affect the route safety or travel time are not taken into consideration for the suggested routes. Use your own discretion in order to decide on the suitability of the suggested routes.

  • The current legal road traffic speed limit always takes priority over the values saved in the data. It is impossible to provide an assurance that the speed values of the navigation system will always match those of the current traffic regulations in every situation.

  • Do not rely exclusively on the navigation system when attempting to locate an emergency service (hospital, fire service etc.). It cannot be guaranteed that all available emergency services in your vicinity are saved in the database. Use your own discretion and abilities to secure help in such situations.

  • Do not keep the navigation system running with the engine stopped. Doing so may discharge the vehicle battery. When you use the navigation system, always keep the engine running.

  • Do not disassemble or modify this system. If you do, it may result in accidents, fire or electrical shock.

  • Some states/provinces may have laws limiting the use of video screens while driving. Use the system only where it is legal to do so.
