SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1. This unit is designed to be used in a vehicle with a 12V battery and negative ground.
2. Do not operate the unit in any other way than described in this manual. Failure to follow
the instructions within this manual will void your warranty.
3. Do not disassemble or alter the unit in any way, because it can cause a defect and your
warranty claim will be rejected. Do not attempt to repair or to service the unit yourself, but
contact an authorized ZENEC dealer instead.
4. Use only original accessories which are designed and manufactured for the unit,
otherwise you will risk to damage it. Install the unit according to the mounting manual and
use only the supplied mounting accessories. The forces of acceleration for accidents are
sometimes huge. Incorrect mounted units are a big risk for the driver and the passengers
of the car, during an accident.
5. Protect the unit from water and other liquids, which can enter the casing. A short circuit or
even fire could be the result.
6. Before you replace a defect fuse, try to find the cause for the short circuit. Please pay
attention to the cables of the power supply! If the short circuit doesn't result from a failure
of the power supply or wiring, you can replace the defective fuse with a new one (same
values). If the short-circuit is still existing, please contact an authorized ZENEC dealer.
7. Be careful not to drain the car battery while using the unit when the car engine is turned
off. Because the unit uses a considerable amount of energy and the battery will be
charged only while the engine is running, it's possible that the battery will discharge to a
point it's not longer possible to start the engine.
8. According to the law in different European countries, driving with monitors in use in the
viewing range of the driver is not allowed, because the driver might be distracted from the
traffic. Please respect the traffic regulations of your country, or you might face penalties
in case of an accident or even loose insurance cover. Please pay attention to the volume
inside your vehicle, because you have to notice exterior sounds like a police siren.
9. Don't expose the unit to hard impacts. A mechanical or electrical damage of the unit could
be the result.
