Protect from Water
Do not submerge or expose the product to water, as this can cause electrical shorts, fire
or other damage.
Protect from High Temperatures
Exposure to direct sunlight for an extended period of time can produce very high temperatures inside your vehicle. Give the interior a chance to cool down before starting playback.
Do not mount radio within close proximity of engine compartment.

may result in fire, electric shock or product damage.
Doing so may obstruct vision or hamper movement which can result in a serious accident.
SHARP METAL EDGES. Route the cables away from moving parts or sharp pointed
edges. This will prevent crimping and damage to the wiring. If the wiring must pass
through a metal hole, be sure to use a rubber grommet to prevent the wire's insulation
from being cut by the metal edge of the hole. It is also recommended to apply sealing
caulk to any opening that may potentially allow water to enter.
• Be sure to choose a location that is flat and has clearance above the unit to prevent any
damage, as well as allow for ventilation.
• Before drilling any holes, carefully inspect the area underneath and behind the mounting
surface where the devices will be mounted to make sure it will not interfere with existing
wires, fuel lines, the fuel tank or any other objects that could be damaged.
• Always disconnect the vehicle negative battery terminal to prevent accidental shorting
during installation.
