GPS Enabled Your phone’s GPS Enabled feature uses information from Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the approximate geographical location of your phone, expressed as latitude and longitude. The availability and accuracy of this location information (and the amount of time that it takes to calculate it) will vary depending on the environment in which you are using the GPS feature.
• Some radios, entertainment equipment and other electronic devices may generate signals that can block or interfere with the GPS receiver ability to receive the distant satellite signals, particularly when such devices are operating in close proximity to the GPS receiver. Therefore, in a 911 call, or when otherwise using the GPS location function, always move your phone away from any such devices.
GPS Enabled The satellites used by the GPS feature of your phone are controlled by the U.S. government and are subject to changes implemented in accordance with the Department of Defense GPS user policy and the Federal Radionavigation Plan. These changes may affect the performance of the GPS feature of your phone.

• Move away from electronic devices. Radios, entertainment devices, and other electronic devices may generate interfering signals that may prevent GPS receiver operation if they are in close proximity to the phone. Move your phone away from such devices when using the GPS-Enabled feature.

Hearing Aid Compatibility Hearing Aid Compatibility When some mobile phones are used with certain hearing devices (including hearing aids andcochlear implants), users may detect a noise which can interfere with the effectiveness of the hearing device. Some hearing devices are more “immune” than others to this interference noise, and mobile phones can also vary in the amount of interference noise they may generate at any given time.
Be sure to evaluate your personal needs by trying out this mobile phone with your specific hearing device, using both antenna positions if equipped with a retractable antenna. More information about hearing aid compatibility may be found at: http://commerce.motorola.com/consumer/QWhtml/ accessibility/default.html, www.fcc.gov, www.fda.gov, and www.accesswireless.org.
