type and capacity may vary depending on the market area and
model of the unit in the sales package.
battery above or below these temperatures the life of a battery may be
shortened. Also, the battery may not reach full capacity. Battery
charging is not allowed below +0°C or above +50°C
When charging the battery, about 70% of the battery capacity will be
charged quickly, the remaining 30% takes relatively more time. Also
note that humidity, temperature, age of the battery and currently used
features (e.g. the GPS) affect the charging time.
BATTERY CARE, MAINTENANCE AND DISPOSAL
The continuous operating time is less when using an old battery than a
new battery. When storing unit for a long time, it should be kept cool
and with fully charged battery in a dry place. Li-Ion batteries do not
contain heavy metals which can damage the environment. Batteries
should be disposed of according to the country-specific regulations.
ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS IN USAGE
SIGHT
The device must have an unobstructed view to satellites at any time. In
marginal conditions (e.g. when staying in surroundings with heavy tree
cover or in a shadow area in between base stations) GPS positioning
may not work properly.
The device can be used like a standard GSM phone with the limited
feature set. In some cases, the device can be built in clothes or special
vests. If the device is mounted somehow, it must be attached to the
surface so that the back of the device is facing up and the top of the
phone upwards to ensure proper functioning of the GPS and GSM.
The unit can be covered with thin low loss material such as plastic,
fibre glass or clothes, but not with metal. This is regarding
particularly to GSM and GPS antenna areas!

SAFETY AND PRECAUTIONS
TELEMATICS PROTOCOL
MPTP (Mobile Phone Telematic Protocol) allows, among other things,
tracking of the device over the SMS/GPRS communication.
Automatically sent telematics messages are only allowed to authorised
numbers configured in the device. Such numbers can be, e.g.
emergency and service center numbers. Position of the device is
retrieved by the GPS, or by the network parameters -the latter being a
network-dependent service.
The carrier for telematics messages is an SMS-message or GPRS
data. Deliveries of all messages is fully handled by and in the
responsibility of the GSM network operator and services can vary
substantially. The charge of a protocol message is determined on the
contract by the service provider.
GPS
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the government
of the United States, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and
maintenance. The system is subject to changes that could affect the
accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment.
EMERGENCY CALLS
The device is an aid and should never be relied upon as an
emergency device. Its functionality is dependent on GSM network and
GPS satellites which may not be available all the time. To make
emergency calls, the device must be turned on and located in an area
with adequate GSM network signal strength.
Making TWIG SOS emergency call also requires GPS satellite
coverage and a valid SIM-card. Emergency calls may not be
possible on all GSM phone networks or when certain network
services or phone features are in use. In unclear cases, consult
the network operator.
