When used correctly, the GNS8350 enhances your
driving experience. The voice and map information
in the GNS8350 cannot be guaranteed accurate as
road layout may change. Always follow the posted
road signs and traffic laws.
The Global Positioning System is operated and
maintained by the US Government. The US
Government is completely responsible for the
accuracy of the Global Positioning System.
Do not mount the GNS8350 in a position which may
obstruct the driver's view or prevent the safe
operation of the vehicle.
The US Government reserves the right to make
changes to the Global Positioning System in
accordance with the Department of Defence civil GPS
user policy and the Federal Radio navigation plan.
These changes along with poor satellite geometry
could cause inaccurate readings.
Do not mount the GNS8350 in a position within an
air bag field of deployment.
GPS signal reception can be affected by the location of
satellites, tall buildings, tunnels, bridges, etc. If the
GNS8350 is not receiving a signal, you will need to
change your location until a signal is received.
