Some features of CarShow Systems are not intended for viewing by the driver when the vehicle is in motion, such as
movie playback. When using navigation, minimize the amount of time spent viewing the screen and use voice prompts
as much as possible. Avoid prolonged use of the touch screen controls. Such use might distract the driver or interfere
with the driver’s safe operation of the vehicle, and thus result in serious injury or death. Such use might also violate state
or local laws.
Rosen Electronics LP disclaims any liability for
any bodily injury or property damage that might result
from any improper or unintended use.

Safety Information and Precautions
WARNING! Please read and follow the following safety precautions.
Failure to follow the instructions below may increase
your risk of collision and personal injury.
The Rosen Navigation software is not a substitute for your personal judgment. The route suggestions should never supersede
any local traffic regulation or your personal judgment and /or knowledge of safe driving practices. Prior to completing any maneuvers suggested by your Rosen Navigation software (for example, a U-turn or a left turn), verify that you can legally and safely
complete the maneuver. Do not follow route suggestions if they direct you to perform an unsafe or illegal maneuver, would place
you in an unsafe situation, or would route you into an area that you consider unsafe.
Do not use the Rosen Navigation software to locate emergency services (such as police, fire stations, hospitals, and clinics).
The database may not include all emergency service providers. Use your own best judgment and ask for directions in these
If the vehicle is in motion, only a passenger should program the Rosen Navigation software. The driver should not program the
system unless the vehicle is parked in a safe location.
The Rosen Navigation software’s map database provides information on suggested routes without regard to factors that may
affect your driving experience or the time required to arrive at your destination. For example, the system does not reflect road detours, closures or construction, some road characteristics (e.g., road surface, slope or grade, weight or height restrictions, etc.),
temporary traffic congestion, weather conditions, and similar factors.
Vehicle Position
The Rosen Navigation software’s computer considers vehicle speed and heading changes, together with longitude and latitude
information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and position on a digital map.
Map and Information Database
The map database used by your Rosen Navigation software was created using high-resolution aerial and land based data collection.
Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While the database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its
release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn
restrictions or road names may change over time.
Errors or missing information in the map data are not covered by the Product Warranty. New and/or updates for the map data
are the responsibility of the End-user.
