Warnings and Notices
GPS System & Location Accuracy Notice:
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the government of the United States, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and
maintenance. The system is subject to changes which could affect the accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment. The inherent
nature of the GPS system itself limits the accuracy of the distance indicated on the unit’s display to within about ±3~5 meters (or yards)
of the actual marked location.
This device is intended as a supplemental handheld navigation aide only. The user assumes all responsibility associated with the use of
this product. It must not be used for any purpose requiring precise measurement of location, direction, distance, velocity or topography.
This device should not be used for any aircraft navigation applications.
Vehicular Use Notice:
Bushnell is committed to the safe and responsible enjoyment of the outdoors.
Do not use this product while driving. An accident can result in property damage, injury or death if the operator fails to practice prudent
driving practices. It is the sole responsibility of the driver of any vehicle to operate the motor vehicle in a safe manner. Information from
the GPS unit can distract the operator of a motor vehicle. It is unsafe to operate the controls of the GPS unit while operating a motor
vehicle. If used in a motor vehicle, it must not be used by the operator of the motor vehicle. If it is used in a motor vehicle it must be
mounted in a manner such that it does not distract the operator, does not interfere with the operator’s field of view, and does not block
or interfere with the air bags or other safety mechanisms of the motor vehicle. Windshields and car windows with integrated metallic
materials, such as defrosters, or car window tinting films, can degrade GPS reception inside a car.
Liability Notice:
In no event shall Bushnell be liable for any incidental, special, indirect or consequential damages, whether resulting from the use, misuse,
or inability to use this product or from defects in the product.
Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
