Your Location
Location-based information includes information that can be used to determine the
approximate location of a mobile device. Mobile devices which are connected to a wireless
network transmit location-based information. Devices enabled with location technology
also transmit location-based information. Additionally, if you use applications that require
location-based information (e.g. driving directions), such applications transmit
location-based information. This location-based information may be shared with third
parties, including your wireless service provider, applications providers, Motorola, and
other third parties providing services.
The following information is applicable to Motorola mobile devices that provide navigation
When using navigation features, note that mapping information, directions and other
navigational data may contain inaccurate or incomplete data. In some countries, complete
information may not be available. Therefore, you should visually confirm that the
navigational instructions are consistent with what you see. All drivers should pay attention
to road conditions, closures, traffic, and all other factors that may impact driving. Always
obey posted road signs.

Smart Practices While Driving

Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices and their
Driving Safety
accessories in the areas where you drive. Always obey them. The use of these
devices may be prohibited or restricted in certain areas—for example, handsfree
use only may be required. Go to
(in English only) for more information.
Note: Voice call features may not be available on all products.
Your mobile device lets you communicate by voice and data—almost anywhere, anytime,
wherever wireless connection is available and safe conditions allow. When driving a car,
driving is your first responsibility. If you choose to use your mobile device while driving,
remember the following tips:
• Get to know your Motorola mobile device and its features such as voice
commands and "read out loud" features. If available, these features help you to
use your device without taking your attention off the road.
• When available, use a handsfree device. If possible, add an additional layer of
convenience to your mobile device with one of the many Motorola Original handsfree
accessories available today.
• Position your mobile device within easy reach. Be able to access your mobile
device without removing your eyes from the road. If you receive a call at an
inconvenient time, if possible, let your voicemail answer it for you.
• Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet,
snow, ice, and even heavy traffic can be hazardous.
• Do not take notes or look up information while driving. Jotting down a "to do"
list or going through your address book takes attention away from your primary
responsibility—driving safely.
• Assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when your car is not moving or
before pulling into traffic. If you must make a call while moving, use features such as
voice commands, check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be distracting.
Make people you are talking with aware you are driving and suspend conversations
that can divert your attention away from the road.
Privacy & Data Security
Motorola understands that privacy and data security are important to everyone. Because

some features of your mobile device may affect your privacy or data security, please follow
these recommendations to enhance protection of your information:
• Monitor access—Keep your mobile device with you and do not leave it where others
may have unmonitored access. Use your device's security and lock features, where
• Keep software up to date—If Motorola or a software/application vendor releases a
patch or software fix for your mobile device that updates the device's security, install it
as soon as possible.
• Secure Personal Information—Your mobile device can store personal information in
various locations including your SIM card, memory card, and internal memory. Be sure
to remove or clear all personal information before you recycle, return, or give away your
device. You can also backup your personal data to transfer to a new device.
Note: For information on how to backup or wipe data from your mobile device, go to
• Online accounts—Some mobile devices provide a Motorola online account (such as
MOTOBLUR). Go to your account for information on how to manage the account, and
how to use security features such as remote wipe and device location (where
• Applications and updates—Choose your apps and updates carefully, and install
from trusted sources only. Some apps can impact your product's performance and/or
have access to private information including account details, useage data, location
details and network resources.
• Wireless—For mobile devices with Wi-Fi features, only connect to trusted Wi-Fi
networks. Also, when using your device as a hotspot (where available) use network
security. These precautions will help prevent unauthorized access to your device.
• Location-based information—Mobile devices enabled with location based
technologies such as GPS, AGPS or Wi-Fi, can transmit location-based information. See
"Location Services" for more details.
• Other information your device may transmit—Your device may also transmit
testing and other diagnostic (including location-based) information, and other
