Map Data Information: One
of the goals of Garmin and ASUS is
to provide customers with the most
complete and accurate cartography that
is available to us at a reasonable cost. We
use a combination of governmental and
private data sources, which we identify
in product literature and copyright
messages displayed to the consumer.
Virtually all data sources contain some
inaccurate or incomplete data. In some
countries, complete and accurate map
information is either not available or is
prohibitively expensive.
RESTRICTIONS: Before using the
suction cup mount on your windshield,
check the state and local laws and
ordinances where you drive. Some
state laws prohibit drivers from using
suction mounts on their windshields
while operating motor vehicles. Other
state laws allow the suction mount to
be located only in specific locations
on the windshield. Many other states
have enacted restrictions against
placing “non-transparent material”
on the windshield or placing objects
on the windshield in locations that

Pacemakers and Other
Medical Devices
Studies have shown that there may be
a potential interaction between mobile
phones and normal pacemaker operation.
The pacemaker industry recommends
that people with pacemakers follow
these guidelines to minimize any risk of
interference with pacemaker operation:
• Always maintain a distance of 15 cm
(6 inches) between the pacemaker and
any mobile phone that is turned on.
• Store the phone on the opposite side of
the pacemaker. Do not carry the phone
in a breast pocket.
• Use the ear furthest from the
pacemaker in order to minimize any
potential for interference.
• If you think that interference may
be occurring, turn off the phone
For other medical devices, consult with
your physician or the manufacturer
to determine if your mobile phone
may interfere with the device, and to
determine any precautions that you can
take to avoid interference.
Radio Frequency Exposure/
Specific Absorption Rate
This device is a transmitter and
receiver that uses its antenna to
send and receive low levels of radio
frequency (RF) energy for voice and
data communications. When in portrait
mode, the cellular antenna is located
along the bottom edge on the back of
the device. The Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®
technology antenna is located between
the camera lens and the volume keys.
Regular review of scientific research
and studies has led to the formation
of international safety guidelines and
regulations regarding limiting exposure
to this RF energy. This product emits RF
energy below the published limits when
operating in its maximum output power
mode and when used with Garminnüvifone G60 Quick Start Manual
Asus authorized accessories. In normal
operation, the device will operate at even
lower output power modes, depending
on many factors including proximity to
network cellular towers and the absence
of external interference.
The RF exposure guidelines use a unit
of measurement known as the specific
absorption rate, SAR. The SAR limit
applicable to this device set by the FCC
is 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg), 1.6
W/kg by Industry Canada, and 2.0 W/kg
by the Council of the European Union.
This device has been tested and is in
compliance with international SAR
Exposure limits. The actual measured
values are as follows:
GSM 900: 0.74 W/kg
GSM 1800: 0.588 W/kg
UMTS 2100: 0.838 W/kg
To be sure that your exposure to RF
energy does not exceed the FCC and
European Union guidelines, follow these
nüvifone G60 Quick Start Manual
• Position the device antenna at least 15
mm (5/8 inch) from your body.
• Only use the device with GarminAsus approved accessories. Only use
accessories that do not have metal parts
and that maintain at least 15 mm (5/8
inch) separation between the device
and your body.
FCC Compliance
This device complies with part 15 of the
FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) this device
may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired
This equipment has been tested and
found to comply with the limits for
a Class B digital device, pursuant to
part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in
a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and may cause harmful
interference to radio communications
if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions. However, there
is no guarantee that interference will
not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one of the following
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
• Increase the separation between the
equipment and the receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet
that is on a different circuit from the
GPS unit.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced
radio/TV technician for help.
This product does not contain any
user-serviceable parts. Repairs should
only be made by an authorized Garmin
service center. Unauthorized repairs or
modifications could result in permanent
damage to the equipment, and void your
warranty and your authority to operate
this device under Part 15 regulations.
