Health Precautions Pacemakers and Other Medical Devices Studies have shown that there may be a potential interaction between mobile devices and normal pacemaker operation. The pacemaker industry recommends that people with pacemakers follow these guidelines to minimize any risk of interference with pacemaker operation: • Always maintain a distance of 15 cm (6 inches) between the pacemaker and any mobile device that is turned on. • Store the device on the opposite side of the pacemaker. Do not carry the nüvi 295W Quick Start Manual device in a breast pocket. • If you think that interference may be occurring, turn off the mobile device immediately. For other medical devices, consult with your physician or the manufacturer to determine if your mobile device may interfere with the medical device, and to determine any precautions that you can take to avoid interference. Avoiding Hearing Damage You can permanently damage your ears and lose hearing if you listen to the earbuds, headphones, or headsets at high volume. Turn the volume down. The volume is typically too loud if you cannot hear people speaking around you. Limit the amount of time you listen at high volume. If you experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked. 13 Avoiding Repetitive Motion You may experience occasional discomfort in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body if you perform repetitive activities, such as typing or playing games, on the device. Take frequent breaks. If you have discomfort while or after using the device, stop using and see a physician. Avoiding Seizures, Blackouts, and Eyestrain A very small percentage of people can experience seizures or blackouts caused by light flashes or patterns, such as while watching videos or playing games. If you have experienced, or have a family history of, seizures or blackouts, consult a physician before playing games or watching videos on your device. Follow these guidelines to reduce the risk of blackouts, seizures, and eyestrain: • Avoid prolonged use of and take frequent breaks from using the device. 14 • Hold the device away from your eyes. • Use the device in a well-lit room. If you experience convulsions, eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary movement, or disorientation, stop using the device and consult a physician. Radio Frequency Exposure/ Specific Absorption Rate This device is a transmitter that uses its antenna to send and receive low levels of radio frequency (RF) energy for data communications. When in portrait mode, the Wi-Fi antenna is located to the right of the camera lens on the back of the device. Regular review of scientific research and studies has led to the formation of international safety guidelines and regulations regarding limiting exposure to this RF energy. This product emits RF energy below the published limits when operating in its maximum output nüvi 295W Quick Start Manual power mode and when used with Garmin authorized accessories. In normal operation, the device will operate at even lower output power modes, depending on many factors including the absence of external interference. The RF exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the specific absorption rate, SAR. The SAR limit applicable to this device set by the FCC is 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg). This device has been tested and is compliant with the FCC and IC RF exposure guidelines for Wi-Fi operation. For countries where this product is sold outside the United States, this product has been tested and is compliant to the applicable RF exposure requirements of the local regulatory authority. 802.11b.g: Head 0.089; Body 0.068 To be sure that your exposure to RF energy does not exceed the FCC guidelines, follow these precautions: • Position the device antenna at least 15 mm (5/8 inch) from your body. • Only use the device with Garmin approved accessories. Only use accessories that do not have metal parts and that maintain at least 15 mm (5/8 inch) separation between the device and your body. This device has been tested and is in compliance with international SAR Exposure limits. The actual measured values are as follows: nüvi 295W Quick Start Manual 15 Troubleshooting Problem/Question Solution/Answer The device will not acquire satellites. • • • • Verify that the GPS simulator is turned off. From the scrolling menu, touch Settings > System > General > GPS Simulator > Off. Verify that you are receiving satellite signals. From the scrolling menu, touch Tools > Where Am I? > > Satellite Info. Verify that the GPS antenna is unobstructed. You must be outdoors or in a vehicle and have a clear view of the sky. Solid materials (except untinted glass), buildings, and dense trees can block satellite signals. Allow the GPS enough time to initialize. When the GPS is turned on for the first time, it may take a few minutes to initialize. The device will not turn on. • • Charge the battery. Replace the battery. See your owner’s manual for more information. The device will not charge. The battery might have exceeded the maximum charging temperature. If the device is mounted, remove it from the mount and place it somewhere out of direct sunlight.
