Reference
What is GPS?
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is available at any time, free of charge, and is accurate to within 5m (15ft).
GPS navigation is made possible by a network of satellites that orbit the Earth at around 20,200km (12,552mi).
Each satellite transmits a range of signals which are utilised by GPS receivers, such as your Mio, to determine an
exact location. Although a GPS receiver can detect signals from up to 12 satellites at any time, only four signals
are required to provide a position or “GPS fix” (latitude and longitude), for vehicle navigation systems.
How does my Mio receive GPS signals?
Your Mio receives GPS signals via the internal GPS antenna. To guarantee the optimum GPS signal strength,
ensure your Mio is outdoors, or in a vehicle outdoors, and has an unobstructed view of the sky. GPS reception is
not usually affected by weather, however, very heavy rain or snow may have a negative effect on your
reception.
Caring for your Mio
Taking good care of your Mio will ensure trouble-free operation and reduce the risk of damage to your Mio:
z
Keep your Mio away from excessive moisture and extreme temperatures.
z
Avoid exposing your Mio to direct sunlight or strong ultraviolet light for extended periods of time.
z
Do not place anything on top of your Mio or drop objects on your Mio.
z
Do not drop your Mio or subject it to severe shock.
z
z
z
z
Do not subject your Mio to sudden and severe temperature changes. This could cause moisture
condensation inside the unit, which could damage your Mio. In the event of moisture condensation, allow
your Mio to dry out completely before use.
The screen surface can easily be scratched. Avoid touching it with sharp objects. Non-adhesive generic
screen protectors designed specifically for use on portable devices with LCD panels may be used to help
protect the screen from minor scratches.
Never clean your Mio when it is turned on. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the screen and the exterior of
your Mio.
Do not use paper towels to clean the screen.

z
z
Never attempt to disassemble, repair or make any modifications to your Mio. Disassembly, modification
or any attempt at repair could cause damage to your Mio and even bodily injury or property damage and
will void any warranty.
Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases or explosive materials in the same compartment as your
Mio, its parts or accessories.
Troubleshooting
If you encounter a problem you cannot solve, contact an authorised service centre for assistance.
