• The maps and location name information (Point of Interest: POI) are as of December 2010.
The maps and location name information
will not be updated.
• The details of geological formations are displayed simplistically according to the scale
of a map. The scale of a map and level of detail of the location information
vary
depending
on country and region.
If the latitude becomes higher, the horizontal and vertical scales displayed on the
monitor vary, therefore displayed geological formations differ from the actual
formations. Use the maps and location name information
only as a guide.
