disposing of it.
When using the unit indoors
• Do not use the AC power adapter placed in a

AC power adapter, etc.) other than those supplied
or optional.
• Do not expose the unit to fire or water, as it may
cause a malfunction.
• Be sure to remove the unit out of the car when
leaving your car to prevent theft or high
temperature damage inside the car.
• Note that the built-in battery cannot be charged
outside the temperature range 5 – 45 ºC (41 –
113 ºF).
• Do not leave the unit in high ambient temperature
as the built-in battery capacity will deteriorate, or
it will become unchargeable.
On GPS
GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites
continuously emit signals for positioning anywhere
on the earth. As a GPS aerial receives these signals,
users can be informed of their location (latitude,
longitude and altitude). Information must be
received from 3 satellites in order to obtain two-
dimensional fixes (latitude and longitude), and 4
satellites are required for three-dimensional
positioning (latitude, longitude and altitude). As
GPS satellites are controlled by the U.S. Department
of Defense, a deliberate margin of error between a
few metres (a few feet) and 10 metres (32.8 feet)
exists. As a result, the GPS navigation system may
include an error of between 10 metres (32.8 feet)
and about 200 metres (656.2 feet), depending on the
circumstances.
