Important safety information

9. Important safety information
Operating environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area
and always switch off your car kit when its use is prohibited or
when it may cause interference or danger.
Electronic devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio
frequency (RF) signals. However, certain electronic equipment
may not be shielded against the RF signals from your car kit.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum
separation of 6 inches (15.3 centimeters) be maintained
between a wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are
consistent with the independent research by and
recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers should:
• always keep the device more than 6 inches (15.3 cm) from
their pacemaker when the device is switched on;
If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking
place, switch your car kit over to off mode immediately.
Potentially explosive atmospheres
Switch your car kit over to off mode, see "Off mode" on page 5,
when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere, and
78
obey all signs and instructions. Potentially explosive
atmospheres include areas where you would normally be
advised to turn off your vehicle engine. Sparks in such areas
could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or
even death.
Switch the device over to off mode at refuelling points such as
near gas pumps at service stations. Observe restrictions on the
use of radio equipment in fuel depots, storage, and distribution
areas, chemical plants or where blasting operations are in
progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but
not always, clearly marked. They include below deck on boats,
chemical transfer or storage facilities, vehicles using liquified
petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), and areas where the
air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or metal
powders.
Vehicles
Only qualified personnel should service the phone or install the
car kit in a vehicle. Faulty installation or service may be
dangerous and may invalidate any warranty that may apply to
the device.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately
shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles such as electronic
fuel injection systems, electronic antiskid (antilock) braking
systems, electronic speed control systems, air bag systems. For
more information, check with the manufacturer or its
representative of your vehicle or any equipment that has been
added.
