▶Navigation Related Facts
The navigator cradle may fall off the windshield if it is attached to the windshield with a suction cup for an
extended period of time. To prevent this, please rest the navigator on the dashboard while it is attached to
the windshield. When not in use, please detach it from the windshield and store the unit.
• Do not unplug the power cable from the car cigarette lighter while the unit is in operation. It may damage the
unit.
• This device is intended as an accessory device for safe driving. Please use it for directions for navigation.
• Operating the navigator while driving can be dangerous. Please stop/park the vehicle when you are operating the navigator.
• For safety purpose, please do not watch videos or pictures while driving. This also applies for different functions of the player.

▶GPS Related Facts
• Upon initial use or when the unit has not been used for a long period of time, it might take 5-30 minutes for
the current location to be recognized after power-up
• GPS signals operate at high frequencies. Climatic elements including rain and fog, electronic jamming, and
surrounding high voltage lines may cause the signal to be weak.
• In high-rise downtowns, tunnels, overpass or underpass, there may be disruption in the operation of the
GPS because the reception may be weakened or broken by surrounding structures.
• Affixing a sticker or coloring the GPS receiver may result in poor reception signals or even permanent damages to the unit
• UV coating or tinting materials for the windshield may cause the GPS reception to fail.
