Safety precautions
For your safety, and that of your passengers, please follow these safety warnings.
▪ Make sure that the unit is installed securely to prevent the stand from coming off or moving during operation. It might cause an
accident.
▪ The GPS receiver might not function normally in some cars that are UV coated, have tinted windows or have anti electromagnetic
wave fitted. In these cases, please contact our sales representative to buy an external GPS antenna which is sold as an optional
item.
▪ GPS signals might be affected under expressways, in tunnels, or in built-up areas due to weak electrical waves.
▪ Use the navigation unit only for reference and do not place too much reliance on it. Map data must be updated annually to avoid
erroneous directions.
▪ Do not use it where it is hot and humid. Install and keep the product out of direct sunlight to prevent it from damage due to
overheating.
▪ Make sure that water or other liquids do not get inside the product. This could cause fire or electric shock.
▪ To reduce the risk or electric shocks, do not open the cover (or back). There are no user-serviceable parts inside.
▪ The GPS receiver operates optimally at 0℃ to 500℃. If the temperature inside of the car is too low or too high, the product might
not function correctly. Make sure that the optimal temperature is maintained.
▪ If the windshield mount is attached to the glass of the vehicle for a long time, it might come off due to reduced adhesiveness.
▪ The memory card (SD or SDHC) could be damaged if used with any other devices.
▪ Do not remove the memory card (SD or SDHC) while the product is in operation. It may cause mechanical problems.
▪ Do not touch the product with wet hands. It might cause electric shock or damage.
▪ Do not disassemble or drop the product. It might cause damage or a mechanical breakdown.
▪ Use only the specified power adapter. Using a different type of adapter might cause damage or a mechanical breakdown.
▪ Touch the LCD with fingers or blunt devices only. If a sharp drill or a nail is used, it might cause damage.

4. Common Knowledge on GPS
 What is GPS?
GPS(Global Positioning System) is a system to provide services such as
position, speed and time measurement using satellite that was developed by
U.S. Department of Defense. There are 24 satellites available currently as a
standard.
[24 satellites available]
GPS can perform accurate measurement of three dimensional position, altitude
and time. It can provide service continuously for 24 hours, is strong against
weather conditions, interference and obstruction, and has a feature to use
global common coordinate system.
To know an exact position you can use a GPS receiver, and receive a signal
simultaneously from at least 4 satellites.
GPS satellite C, Distance C, Positioning point
Intersection point of 3 sections, Principle of GPS positioning
GPS Satellite C
GPS Satellite B
GPS Satellite A
Distance B
Distance C
Distance A
Measuring point (Intersection point
of 3 sections)
[How to measure position via GPS]
GPS is accompanied with about 5m~15m error even though SA does not
activate during single positioning(absolute positioning, 1 point positioning)
31
where position is measured by only one receiver, so the single positioning
method is being utilized mainly for navigation such as vehicle, ship, aircraft, etc.
or in GIS field where allowable error is relatively big rather than for
measurement.
 Cautions during Use of GPS

4
Do not dissemble, repair, or reassemble it.
Avoid contact with water or liquid.
Avoid shock, high temperature, high humidity, etc.
Signal may be affected by the following conditions:

Tree foliage.

Next to tall buildings, beneath bridge, beneath elevated road.

Inside buildings, tunnels, aircraft, ships etc.

Beneath other objects blocking the GPS antenna

when covered by the palm of a hand.

Do not put gold, metallic objects, or electric wave emitting objects
around GPS. Do not leave GPS for long time where there is severely
high or low temperature.
