base. Please use your own judgment and ask for
directions in these situations.
5) The map database used in the navigation system
is the most recent map data available at the time
of production. Because of changes in streets and
neighborhoods, there may be situations where the
navigation system is not able to route you to your
desired destination. In these cases, use your own
judgment.
6) The map database is designed to provide you with
route suggestions and does not take into account
the relative safety of a suggested route or of factors which may affect the time required to reach
your destination. The system does not reflect road
closures or construction, road characteristics (i.e.
type of road surface, slope or grade, weight or
height restrictions, etc.), traffic congestion, weather conditions, or any other factors which may
affect the safety or timing of your driving experience. Use your own personal judgment if the navigation system is unable to provide you with an
alternate route.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there
is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures:
·Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
·Increase the separation between the equipment and
the receiver.
·Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
·Consult an experienced radio/TV technician.

you how to use this product safely and to alert you to
potential dangers resulting from improper connections and operation. Following are explanations of
these pictorial displays. It is important to fully understand the meanings of these pictorial displays in
order to use this manual and the system properly.
WARNING
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in serious
injury or death.
DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR
ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE.
Any function that requires your prolonged attention
should only be performed after coming to a complete
stop. Always stop the vehicle in a safe location
before performing these functions. Failure to do so
may result in an accident.
KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL
HEAR OUTSIDE NOISE WHILE DRIVING.
Failure to do so may result in an accident.
MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING.
Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of the vehicle and cause an accident.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric
shock.
USE THIS PRODUCT AS SPECIFIED.
Use for other than its designed application may result
in fire, electric shock or other injury.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE
REACH OF CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.
DO NOT PLACE HANDS, FINGERS OR FOREIGN OBJECTS
IN INSERTION SLOTS OR GAPS.
Doing so may result in personal injury or damage to
the product.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING
FUSES.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in injury or
material property damage.
HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.
Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage
to the product. Return it to your authorized ALPINE
dealer or the nearest ALPINE Service Center for
repairing.
PRECAUTIONS
Temperature
Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between
+45°C (+113°F) and -0°C (+32°F) before turning your
unit on.
Fuse Replacement
When replacing the fuse(s), the replacement must be
of the same amperage as shown on the fuse holder.
If the fuse(s) blows more than once, carefully check
all electrical connections for shorted circuitry. Also
have your vehicle’s voltage regulator checked.
Servicing the Unit
If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the
unit yourself. Return it to your ALPINE dealer or the
nearest ALPINE Service Station for servicing.
Installation Location
Make sure the PMD-B100 will not be exposed to:
• Direct sun and heat • Excessive dust
• High humidity
• Excessive vibrations
Characteristics of LCD Panel
• After turning the system off, a slight ghost of the
image will remain temporarily. This is an effect
peculiar to LCD technology and is normal.
• Under cold temperature conditions, the screen
may lose contrast temporarily. After a short warmup period, it will return to normal.
• The LCD panel is manufactured using an extremely
high precision manufacturing technology. Its effective pixel ratio is over 99.99%. This means that
0.01% of the pixels could be either always ON or
OFF.
Using Headphones
If ACC or the monitor's power source is turned off, a
loud noise may be produced through the headphone
jack. Be sure to remove the headphones from your
ears before you turn the monitor off.
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.
Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may
result in fire.
