Java Applications and GPS
Enabled
Some Java applications can make use of your
phone’s GPS feature to determine the approximate
geographical location of your phone. (See “GPS
Enabled” on page 86 for more information on the
GPS feature.) However, for privacy reasons, you
may not always want Java applications to access
the location of your phone. Your phone protects
your privacy by giving you the option to block all or
some Java applications from accessing the
location of your phone.
Setting Privacy for All Java
Applications
These options control the privacy of all Java
applications on your phone:
• Restricted — No Java or similar software
applications may access the location of your
phone. However, location information may still
be available to the phone’s owner, fleet
manager, or account administrator.
• Unrestricted — All Java applications may
access the location of your phone, without
notifying you.
83
Java Applications
• By Permission — When a Java application
attempts to access the location of your phone,
you are prompted to give permission. However,
location information may still be available to the

information on choosing these options.
Granting or Denying Permission
If you choose By Permission, you must grant or
deny each Java application access to the location
of your phone when the application requests
access for the first time. You may be required to
grant or deny subsequent requests from the same
application, depending on the privacy setting you

85
GPS Enabled
GPS Enabled
Your phone’s GPS Enabled feature uses
information from Global Positioning System (GPS)
satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the
approximate geographical location of your phone,
expressed as latitude and longitude. The
availability and accuracy of this location
information (and the amount of time that it takes to
calculate it) will vary depending on the environment
in which you are using the GPS feature. For
example, GPS location fixes are often difficult to
obtain indoors, in covered locations, between high
buildings, or in other situations where you have not
established a clear broad view of the sky. SEE:
“IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind”.
When you make a 911 emergency call, the GPS
feature of your phone can help emergency
personnel locate you if your phone has adequate
access to GPS satellite signals and your
emergency response center is equipped to process
such information.
You can also use the GPS feature to view your
approximate location. Location information
appears on the phone’s display.
86
Java applications loaded on your phone can also
request your location. If your phone is connected to
a laptop computer or similar device, software
running on that device can request your location.
To protect your privacy, you can control whether
these requests are granted.
IMPORTANT: Things to Keep
in Mind
If you are using the GPS feature of your phone
while driving, please give full attention to driving
and to the road.
Where adequate signals from multiple satellites
are not available (usually because your GPS
antenna cannot establish a view of a wide area of
open sky), the GPS feature of your phone WILL
NOT WORK. Such situations include but are
not limited to:
• In underground locations
• Inside of buildings, trains, or other covered
vehicles
• Under any other metal or concrete roof or
structure
• Between tall buildings or under dense
tree-cover
• Near a powerful radio or television tower
Making an Emergency Call
• When your GPS antenna is covered (for
example, by your hand or other object) or
facing the ground
• In temperature extremes outside the
operating limits of your phone
Walking or driving very slowly may also
substantially reduce GPS performance.
Even where location information can be
calculated in such situations, it may take much
longer to do so, and your location estimate may
not be as accurate. Therefore, in any 911 call,
always report the location to the emergency
response center if you can and if you cannot,
remain on your phone for as long as the
emergency response center instructs you.
Even where adequate signals from multiple
satellites are available, your GPS feature will
only provide an approximate location, often
within 150 feet (45 meters) but sometimes
much further from your actual location. Advice
on how to improve GPS performance is
provided in “Enhancing GPS Performance” on
page 89.
While the GPS feature of your phone can be a
valuable navigational aid, it does not replace the
need for careful navigating and good judgment.
Never rely solely on one device for navigation.
Remember that the accuracy of the location
information and the time needed to obtain it will
vary depending on circumstances, particularly the
ability to receive signals from adequate numbers of
satellites.
On emergency calls, your phone uses assistance
information from the phone network to improve the
speed and accuracy of your phone’s location
calculation: if such assistance information
becomes unavailable, it may reduce the speed and
accuracy of the location calculation.
The satellites used by the GPS feature of your
phone are controlled by the U.S. government and
are subject to changes implemented in accordance
with the Department of Defense GPS user policy
and the Federal Radionavigation Plan. These
changes may affect the performance of the GPS
feature of your phone.
Making an Emergency Call
Dial 911 to be connected to an emergency
response center. If you are on an active call, you
must end it before calling 911.
When you make an emergency 911 call, the GPS
feature of your phone begins to seek information to
calculate your approximate location. It will take
the GPS feature of your phone some time to
determine your approximate location. Even
where your phone has good access to sufficient
87
GPS Enabled
GPS satellite signals and network assist data, it
may take 30 seconds or more to determine the
approximate location. This time will increase where
there is reduced access to satellite signals. When
your approximate location is determined, it is made
available to the appropriate emergency response
center.
In some cases, your local 911 emergency
response center may not be equipped to
receive GPS location information. For this
reason, and because the GPS location information
reported is only approximate or may not be
available in your location (see “IMPORTANT:
Things to Keep in Mind” on page 86), always
report your location to the 911 operator you
speak to when making an emergency call, if able,
just as you would when using a phone without GPS
capabilities.
Note: If you are concerned about whether your
local 911 emergency response center is
equipped to receive GPS location
information, contact your local authorities.
In general, if your phone has access to signals
from more GPS satellites, your location will be
determined faster and more accurately than if your
phone has access to signals from fewer GPS
satellites.
88
If your phone does not have adequate access to
GPS satellites signals, the location of the nearest
cell tower in contact with your phone is
automatically made available to the emergency
response center, if the center has the capability to
receive such information.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 89 for
information on how to help your phone determine
your location.
Viewing Your Approximate
Location
1 From the main menu, select GPS > Position.
2 Scroll to view the entire screen.
This displays the following information about the
last time your location was calculated:
• The time (as Greenwich Mean Time) and date
that the location was last calculated
• The approximate location, expressed as latitude
and longitude
• The estimated accuracy of the calculated
location. This estimate of accuracy is only a very
rough estimate and may vary substantially from
the actual accuracy of the approximate location
information reported.
Enhancing GPS Performance
• The number of satellites used to calculate the
location. In general, more satellites make for
better accuracy.
To calculate your location again:
Press A under Rfrsh.
It may take your phone several minutes to
complete the process of determining your location.
During this time, a message usually appears on
your phone’s display saying your phone is
scanning for satellites. For tips on getting the best
location calculation, see “Enhancing GPS
Performance”.
The Position screen displays the updated
information.
To cancel a location calculation before it is
completed:
Press A under Cancel to return to the
Position screen. -or-
If you received a phone call or alert while
attempting to determine your location, the Position
screen will disappear, but your phone will continue
attempting to determine its location. If it is
successful, the new location information will be
displayed the next time you view the Position
screen.
Enhancing GPS Performance
Sometimes the GPS feature of your phone may be
unable to complete a location calculation
successfully. If this happens when you are making
an emergency call, the location of the nearest cell
tower in contact with your phone is made available
to the appropriate emergency response center if
the center has the capability to receive such
information. If this happens when you are trying to
view your location on the phone’s display, you will
see a message indicating that your phone cannot
access satellites.
Press e to return to the idle screen.
Each time approximate location of your phone is
calculated, the latest location information is stored
in your phone and remains there even when your
phone is powered off. You will see this information
the next time you view the Position screen.
89
GPS Enabled
To improve accuracy and increase your chances of
a successful calculation, do the following while
your phone is determining your approximate
location:
• Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best
where there is nothing between your phone and
a large amount of open sky. If possible, go
outside, away from tall buildings and foliage.
While performance in a building is improved by
moving closer to windows, glass with certain sun
shielding films may block satellite signals.
• Extend your phone antenna.
• Hold your phone to enhance reception. Signals
from GPS satellites are transmitted to your GPS
antenna, which is in your phone antenna. Hold
your phone away from your body, giving the
antenna clear access to satellite signals. Do not
cover the antenna area with your fingers or
anything else.
GPS antenna area
• Stand still. If possible, stand still until your phone
is finished determining your location. Moving
your phone at a walking pace while your phone
is calculating your approximate location may
substantially decrease GPS performance.
• In a car. When using the GPS Enabled feature in
a car, position your phone so that the GPS
antenna has good access to GPS signals
through the car’s windows. Typically, the GPS
antenna has best access to GPS signals in a car
when placed near a window.
Note: Although moving your phone at a walking
pace decreases GPS performance,
moving it at the speed of a moving car
does not.
• Stay in SouthernLINC Wireless coverage. The
SouthernLINC Wireless network will provide
your phone with information that helps
determine your location more quickly and
accurately.
If your satellite almanac data is out of date, your
phone may prompt you to update it. Follow the
instructions that appear on the phone’s display.
You may be asked to go to a web site or call a
SouthernLINC Wireless customer care number.

Using GPS with Map Software
You can use the GPS feature of your phone to
provide approximate location data to a laptop
computer or similar device that is running
interactive map software such as that made by
DeLorme or Microsoft. This way, if your phone has
good access to GPS signals, your approximate
position on a map can be made available as you
travel in a vehicle.
To do this, connect your phone to your laptop (or
other device) with a data cable and set your phone
to transmit data (see “Getting Started” on page 93).
Your phone then provides your approximate
location to the device running the map software,
92
which displays your location on a map. Your phone
provides an updated location every second and the
map software displays your changing location on
its map.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 89 for
more details on obtaining good location
information.
Note: Because your phone is continuously
determining your location, using the GPS
feature of your phone with map software
uses the phone’s battery power quickly.
Software Compatibility
Your phone sends location information to your
laptop or other device using the standard National
Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) format.
Your phone supports output messages in
NMEA-0183 format and supports the following
NMEA-0183 sentences: GGA, GLL, GSA, GSV,

changes to settings without switching or editing
profiles.
A temporary profile is based on the profile in effect
when you made the changes, but reflects the
changed settings. Making more changes further
updates the temporary profile, for as long as it is in
effect.
A temporary profile stays in effect until you switch
profiles, power off your phone, or delete it (or the
profile it is based on) from the list of profiles.
If you do not store a temporary profile, it is deleted
when you switch profiles or power off your phone.
A temporary profile is automatically given the same
name as the profile it is based on, but with an
asterisk (*) in front of it.

RF Operational Characteristics
Safety and General
Information
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON SAFE AND
EFFICIENT OPERATION.
READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE USING
YOUR INTEGRATED MULTI-SERVICE
PORTABLE RADIO.
RF Operational
Characteristics
Your radio product contains a radio frequency
transmitter to convey the information you wish to
send as well as occasional automatic signals used
to sustain connection to the wireless network, and
a receiver which enables you to receive
communication and connection information from
the network.
Portable Radio Product
Operation and EME Exposure
Your Motorola radio product is designed to comply
with the following national and international
standards and guidelines regarding exposure of
human beings to radio frequency electromagnetic
energy (EME):
• United States Federal Communications
Commission, Code of Federal Regulations; 47
CFR part 2 sub-part J.
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI) /
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE). C95. 1-1992.
• Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE). C95. 1-1999 Edition.
• International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1998.
• Ministry of Health (Canada). Safety Code 6.
Limits of Human Exposure to Radiofrequency
Electromagnetic Fields in the Frequency Range
from 3 kHz to 300 GHz, 1999.
• Australian Communications Authority
Radiocommunications (Electromagnetic
Radiation - Human Exposure) Standard 2003.
• ANATEL, Brasil Regulatory Authority, Resolution
303 (July 2, 2002) "Regulation of the limitation of
exposure to electrical, magnetic, and
electromagnetic fields in the radio frequency
range between 9 kHz and 300 GHz."
"Attachment to Resolution 303 from July 2,
2002."
113
Safety and General Information
To assure optimal radio product performance
and make sure human exposure to radio
frequency electromagnetic energy is within the
guidelines set forth in the above standards,
always adhere to the following procedures:
Phone Operation
When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your
radio product as you would a wireline telephone.
Speak directly into the microphone.
Two-way radio operation
Your radio product has been designed and tested
to comply with national and international standards
and guidelines regarding human exposure to RF
electromagnetic energy, when operated in the
two-way mode (at the face, or at the abdomen
when using an audio accessory) at usage factors
of up to 50% talk/50% listen.
Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50%
of the time. To transmit (talk), push the
Push-To-Talk (PTT) button. To receive calls,
release the PTT button. Transmitting 50% of the
time or less, is important because this radio
generates measurable RF energy only when
transmitting (in terms of measuring for standards
compliance).
114
When using your radio product as a
traditional two-way radio, hold the
radio product in a vertical position
with the microphone one to two
inches (2.5 to 5 cm) away from the
lips.
Body-worn operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure
guidelines, if you wear a radio product on your
body when transmitting, always place the radio
product in a Motorola approved clip, holder,
holster, case or body harness for this product.
Use of non-Motorola-approved accessories may
exceed FCC RF exposure guidelines. If you do
not use a Motorola approved body-worn
accessory and are not using the radio product
in the intended use positions along side the
head in the phone mode or in front of the face
in the two-way radio mode, then ensure the
antenna and the radio product are kept the
following minimum distances from the body
when transmitting
• Phone or Two-way radio mode: one inch (2.5
cm)
• Data operation using any data feature with or
without an accessory cable: one inch (2.5
cm)
Portable Radio Product Operation and EME Exposure
ALL MODELS WITH FCC ID AZ489FT5832 MEET THE
GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE
TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It
is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission
limits for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by
the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S.
Government. These limits are part of comprehensive
guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for
the general population. The guidelines are based on
standards that were developed by independent scientific
organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of
scientific studies. The standards include a substantial
safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones
employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is
1.6W/kg.1 Tests for SAR are conducted using standard
operating positions reviewed by the FCC with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the
highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the
phone while operating can be well below the maximum
value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at
multiple power levels so as to use only the power required
to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a
wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it
must be tested and certified to the FCC that is does not
exceed the limit established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in
positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the
body) as required by the FCC for each model. The highest
SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at the
ear is 1.45 W/kg and when tested on the body, as
described in this user guide, is 1.26 W/kg during packet
data transmission. (Body-worn measurements differ
among phone models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements.)2
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of
various phones and at various positions, they all meet the
government requirement for safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this
model phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in
compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
information on this model phone is on file with the FCC
and can be found under the Display Grant section of
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID
AZ489FT5832.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR)
can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for
mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg)
averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard
incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give
additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
2 The SAR information reported to the FCC includes the
FCC-accepted Motorola testing protocol, assessment
procedure, and measurement uncertainty range for this
product.

Safety and General Information
Antenna Care
Facilities
Use only the supplied or an approved
replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could damage the
radio product and may violate FCC regulations.
To avoid electromagnetic interference and/or
compatibility conflicts, turn off your radio product in
any facility where posted notices instruct you to do
so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using
equipment that is sensitive to external RF energy.
DO NOT hold the antenna when the radio
product is “IN USE”. Holding the antenna affects
call quality and may cause the radio product to
operate at a higher power level than needed.
Approved Accessories
For a list of approved Motorola accessories call
1-800-453-0920, or visit our website at
www.motorola.com/iden.
Electromagnetic
Interference/Compatibility
Note: Nearly every electronic device is
susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI) if inadequately
shielded, designed or otherwise
configured for electromagnetic
compatibility.
Aircraft
When instructed to do so, turn off your radio
product when on board an aircraft. Any use of a
radio product must be in accordance with
applicable regulations per airline crew instructions.
Implantable Medical Devices
A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be
maintained between a handheld wireless phone
and an implantable medical device, such as a
pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator,
to avoid potential interference with the device.
Persons who have such devices:
• Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six
(6) inches from their implantable medical device
when the phone is turned ON;
• Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the implantable
medical device to minimize the potential for
interference;
116
Operational Warnings
• Should turn the phone OFF inmediately if there
is any reason to suspect that the interference is
taking place.
• Should read and follow the directions from the
manufacturer of the implantable medical device.
If you have any questions about using your
wireless phone with such a device, consult your
health care provider.
For more information, see www.fcc.cellphones.gov
Use While Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of radio
products in the area where you drive. Always obey
them.
When using the radio product while driving, please:
• Give full attention to driving and to the road.
• Use hands-free operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before making or
answering a call if driving conditions so require.
Operational Warnings
For Vehicles with an Air
Bag
Do not place a portable radio product in the area
over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area.
Air bags inflate with great force. If a portable radio
is placed in the air bag deployment area and the air
bag inflates, the radio product may be propelled
with great force and cause serious injury to
occupants of the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn off your radio product prior to entering any
area with a potentially explosive atmosphere,
unless it is a radio product type especially qualified
for use in such areas as “Intrinsically Safe” (for
example, Factory Mutual, CSA, or UL approved).
Do not remove, install, or charge batteries in such
areas. Sparks in a potentially explosive
atmosphere can cause an explosion or fire
resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Note: The areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres referred to above include
fueling areas such as below decks on
boats, fuel or chemical transfer or
storage facilities, areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles, such
117
Safety and General Information
as grain, dust or metal powders, and
any other area where you would
normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle engine. Areas with potentially
explosive atmospheres are often but
not always posted.
Blasting Caps and Areas
To avoid possible interference with blasting
operations, turn off your radio product when you
are near electrical blasting caps, in a blasting area,
or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey
all signs and instructions.
Operational Cautions
Batteries
All batteries can cause property damage and/or
bodily injury, such as burns if a conductive material
such as jewelry, keys, or beaded chains touches
exposed terminals. The conductive material may
complete an electrical circuit (short circuit) and
become quite hot. Exercise care in handling any
charged battery, particularly when placing it inside
a pocket, purse, or other container with metal
objects. To reduce the risk of injury, batteries
should not be exposed to fire, disassembled, or
crushed.
118
Cleaning and Drying Considerations
Using a leather carry case may help protect the
surfaces and help prevent liquids (e.g., rain) from
entering into the interior of the radio product. This
product is not water proof, and exposing the unit to
liquids may result in permanent damage to the unit.
If your radio product interior gets wet, then do not
try to accelerate drying with the use of an oven or a
dryer as this will damage the radio product and
void the warranty. Instead, do the following:
1 Immediately power off the radio product.
2 Remove Battery and SIM card (if so equipped)
from radio product.
3 Shake excess liquid from radio product.
4 Place the radio product and battery in an area
that is at room temperature and has good air
flow.
5 Let the radio product, battery, and SIM card dry
for 72 hours before reconnecting the battery
and/or powering on the radio product.
If the radio product does not work after following
the steps listed above, contact your dealer for
servicing information.
Accessory Safety Information
Clean the external surfaces of the radio product
with a damp cloth, using a mild solution of
dishwashing detergent and water. Some
household cleaners may contain chemicals that
could seriously damage the radio product. Avoid
the use of any petroleum-based solvent cleaners.
Also, avoid applying liquids directly on the radio
product.
Accessory Safety Information
Important: Save these accessory safety
instructions.
• Before using any battery or battery charger, read
all the instructions for and cautionary markings
on (1) the battery, (2) the battery charger, which
may include a separate wall-mounted power
supply or transformer, and (3) the radio product
using the battery.
• Do not expose any battery charger to water,
rain, or snow as they are designed for indoor or
in-vehicle use only.
Warning: To reduce the risk of injury,
charge only the rechargeable
batteries described in “Charging the
Battery” on page 3. Other types of
batteries may burst, causing personal
injury and damage.
• To reduce the risk of damage to the cord or plug,
pull by the plug rather than the cord when you
disconnect the battery charger from the power
source outlet.
• Do not operate any battery charger with a
damaged cord or plug — replace them
immediately.
• Battery chargers may become warm during
operation, but not hot. If it becomes hot to the
touch, unplug it from the power outlet
immediately and discontinue its use.
• Use of a non-recommended attachment to a
battery charger may result in a risk of fire,
electric shock, or injury to persons.
• Make sure the battery charger power cord is
located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped
over, or subjected to damage or stress.
• An extension cord should not be used with any
battery charger unless absolutely necessary.
Use of an improper extension cord could result
in a risk of fire and electric shock. If an extension
cord must be used, make sure that:
• The pins on the plug of the extension cord are
the same number, size, and shape as those
on the plug of the charger.
• The extension cord is properly wired and in
good electrical condition.
119
Safety and General Information
• The cord size is 18AWG for lengths up to 100
feet and 16AWG for lengths up to 150 feet.
• Do not operate any battery charger if it has
received a sharp blow, has been dropped, or
has been damaged in any way; take it to a
qualified service technician.
• Do not disassemble a battery charger; take it
to a qualified service technician when service
or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly
may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
• Maximum ambient temperature around the
power supply or transformer of any battery
charger should not exceed 40°C (104°F).
• The output power from the power supply or
transformer must not exceed the rating given
on the Desktop Dual-Pocket Charger.
• The disconnection from the line voltage is
made by unplugging the power supply from
the AC receptacle.
• To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug any
battery charger from the outlet before
attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
For optimum charging performance, turn off the
radio product while charging it in any battery
charger.

California Perchlorate
Label
Some mobile phones use an internal, permanent
backup battery on the printed circuit board that
may contain very small amounts of perchlorate. In
such cases, California law requires the following
label:
“Perchlorate Material - special handling may apply.
See www.dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/perchlorate.”
There is no special handling required by consumer.
