EMI / RFI
The rapid development of electronics, especially in the area of communications,
has saturated our environment with electromagnetic (radio) waves that are
emitted by television transmitters, cellular phones, citizen’s band radios (CBs)
amateur radios (HAM radios), wireless computers links, microwave transmitters,
paging transmitters, etc. These electromagnetic (EM) waves are invisible and
increase in strength the closer one gets to the source of transmission. When
these energy waves act upon electrical devices and cause them to malfunction or
to function in an erratic or uncontrolled manner, they are referred to as
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) or Radio Frequency Interference (RFI).
EMI / RFI AND YOUR BUZZAROUND LITE™
All electrically powered vehicles, including scooters are susceptible to EMI / RFI.
This interference could result in abnormal or unintended movement of your
Golden Technologies Buzzaround Lite.
The FDA has determined that each make and model of scooter can resist EMI /
RFI to a certain level. The higher the level of resistance, the greater the degree
of protection from EMI / RFI – measured in volts per meter (V/M). The FDA has
also determined that current technology is capable of providing 20 V/M of
resistance to EMI/RFI, which would provide useful protection against common
sources of interference. The resistance level of the Golden Technologies
Buzzaround Lite is unknown.
EMI / RFI RECOMMENDATIONS
• Do not turn on or use hand-held personal electronic communication
devices such as cellular phones, walkie-talkies, or CB radios while your
scooter is turned on.
• Be aware of any nearby transmitters (radio, television, microwave, etc.) on
your intended route and avoid operation of your scooter close to any of
those transmitters.
• Remove the key if your Buzzaround Lite is going to be in a stationary
position for any length of time.
• Be aware that adding accessories or components or modifying your
scooter may make it more susceptible to EMI / RFI.
• If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn your scooter off and
remove the key as soon as it is safe to do so.
• Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake failure to Golden
Technologies.
WARNING: TURN OFF YOUR SCOOTER AND REMOVE THE KEY AS SOON AS IT IS SAFE
TO DO SO IF UNINTENDED OR UNCONTROLLABLE MOTION OCCURS OR IF
UNINTENDED BRAKE RELEASE OCCURS.

Control through tight spots
As you use your Buzzaround Lite™ to increase your mobility, you will
undoubtedly encounter some obstacles that will require practice to negotiate
smoothly and safely. Below are some common obstacles that you may meet
during the daily use of your scooter. Listed with those obstacles are some
driving tips that should help you conquer those obstacles. Learn and follow
those tips, and with surprising ease you will soon be in control of your scooter as
you maneuver it through doors, up and down ramps, up and over curbs, through
grass and gravel, and up and down inclines.
Doors
• Approach any unfamiliar door slowly.
• Notice if the door has a knob or a push bar.
• Determine if the door opens towards you or away from you.
• Do not try to use your own strength to open the door. Learn to use the
power of your scooter to do the majority of the work for you.
If the door opens away from you:
1. Use one hand to turn the doorknob or to operate the push bar.
2. Use your other hand to steer the scooter and to gently press on the thumb
lever that will move your scooter slowly forward.
3. Use your arm to push the door gently open.
4. Drive through the doorway.
5. If it is a self-closing door, it will close behind you.
6. If it is not a self-closing door, stop your scooter when it is clear of the door
and use your hand to push the door closed.
If the door opens towards you:
1. Use one hand to turn the doorknob or to pull the handle.
2. Keep your grip on the knob or on the handle.
3. Use your other hand to steer your scooter and to gently press the thumb
lever that will move your scooter slowly in reverse.
4. Allow the power of your Buzzaround Lite to pull the door completely open.
5. When the door is completely open, stop your scooter.
6. Drive through the doorway while keeping your hand on the door to prevent
it from hitting or blocking your scooter.
7. If it is a self-closing door, it will close behind you.
8. If it is not a self-closing door, pull it closed behind you.
Ramps
Because of the American Disabilities Act (ADA), many buildings are fitted with
ramps that provide access for scooters and for other mobility vehicles.
Page 19
Buzzaround Lite™ Owner’s Manual – Models GB106 and GB106XR
Updated 07/08
RIDING YOUR BUZZAROUND LITE™ cont.
When proceeding up any ramp, curb, or incline:
• Lean forward in your seat to move your center of gravity forward for
maximum stability and safety.
RISK OF ACCIDENTS!
Negotiating curbs requires practice.
Please observe the maximum obstacle heights of 2 inches.
Please start practicing curb climbing with small curbs.
If the ramp has a switchback, good cornering ability is required.
• Maneuver your scooter so that the front wheels take wide swings around
the corners of the ramp.
• Doing this will allow your scooter’s back wheels to follow a wide arc
around the corner, staying clear of obstacles.
If you must stop your scooter while driving up a ramp:
• Starting up again simply requires that you apply gentle and steady forward
power (pressure to the right-hand thumb lever).
• Accelerate gently after stopping on any incline.
Driving down a ramp:
• Keep your Buzzaround Lite™ speed control dial set fully counterclockwise
at the slowest speed setting.
• If you must come to a stop, release the thumb control lever slowly and
smoothly.
Max incline GB106:
6°
Max incline GB106XR:
7.5°
Grass and Gravel
Your Buzzaround Lite performs admirably on grass, gravel, and hills, but you
must follow the operational parameters presented in this manual. Refer to the
“Safety” section. If you are unsure about any situation, avoid it. Common sense
is your best protection
• Feel free to use your Buzzaround Lite on lawns or in park areas.
• Avoid long or high grass, which may wrap around your scooter’s axles.

GENERAL CARE AND MAINTENANCE
WARNING: THE BATTERIES USED ON YOUR SCOOTER HOLD A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT
OF POWER. SHORTING OF THE TERMINALS CAN RESULT IN BURNS OR OTHER
INJURIES AND IN DAMAGE TO THE BATTERIES AND TO THE ELECTRONIC
COMPONENTS OF YOUR BUZZAROUND LITE. ALWAYS USE CARE AND CAUTION WHEN
HANDLING THE BATTERIES.
Battery Charging Information
Note: Your scooter may be equipped with either “GEL”, “Lead Acid”, or “AGM”
batteries. These batteries do NOT have “memory”. It is not necessary to
completely discharge the batteries before charging them.
Note: If you are not going to use your Buzzaround Lite for an extended time,
fully charge the batteries before storing your scooter. The batteries can be left
unmaintained for up to 6 months if they are first fully charged and kept at room
temperature (approximately 72° F).
Note: if you have not used your scooter for more then three days, make certain
that you charge the batteries on the night before you are going to use your
scooter. This will ensure that you start operating your scooter with a full charge
on the batteries.
Note: If you use your scooter during the day, charge the batteries as soon as
you are finished using it. The charger is fully automatic. Following this
procedure will prepare you scooter for a full day’s service each day.
Note: If you use your scooter sparingly over the course of the day, and have not
reduced the charge on the batteries by any great amount, it may not be
necessary to charge the batteries every night.
Battery Maintenance
Lead Acid, Gel-cell or AGM deep-cycle batteries are used for operating your
Buzzaround Lite
• These batteries are maintenance-free.
• There is no danger of spillage or leakage, so these batteries are safe to
transport on aircraft, busses, trains, etc.
• By following the procedures set out in this manual, you can expect
extended life from your batteries.
