Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Please read these simple guidelines.
Not following these guidelines may
be dangerous or illegal.
Exposure to radio frequency
energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) information
This mobile phone model KM900
has been designed to comply with
applicable safety requirements for
exposure to radio waves. These
requirements are based on scientific
guidelines that include safety
margins designed to assure the
safety of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
• The radio wave exposure
guidelines employ a unit of
measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
Tests for SAR are conducted using
standardised methods with the
phone transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all used
LG KM900 | User Guide
frequency bands.
• While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of various
LG phone models, they are all
designed to meet the relevant
guidelines for exposure to radio
waves.
• The SAR limit recommended by
the International Commission on
Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) is 2W/kg averaged over
10g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this
model phone tested by DASY4 for
use at the ear is 0.602 W/kg (10g)
and when worn on the body is
0.646 W/Kg(10g).
• SAR data information for
residents in countries/regions
that have adopted the SAR limit
recommended by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE), which is 1.6 W/kg averaged
over 1g of tissue.

GPS technology uses information
from earth-orbiting satellites to find
locations.
A receiver estimates the distance to
GPS satellites based on the time it
takes for signals to reach them, then
uses that information to identify its
location.
This can take up to several minutes
to find your location.
Stand Alone GPS Receiver – The
technology that communicates
to the GPS Satellites to determine
current location.
A-GPS – This is assisted GPS which
decreases the time to first fix (your
location) using the network. Charges
may apply, please contact your
service provider for more details.
To change your GPS setting go to
Menu >> Connectivity >> GPS type
and choose from Assisted GPS or
Stand alone.
GPS Mapping Software – Software
that accesses the information from
the GPS Receiver and uses this to
place you on a map. Maps are stored
on a Server where all mapping
information is streamed to the
handset over a data connection
(charges may apply). An example
of this software is Google Maps.
Note that this type of mapping
does not provide turn-by-turn voice
navigation.
GPS Navigation Software –
Software that accesses the
information from the GPS Receiver
and uses this to provide turn-by-turn
voice navigation on a map.
There are two types of GPS
Navigation Software:
• Maps stored on Handset/Memory
Card where no Data connection
is required. A third party may
provide this solution.
• Maps stored on Server where all
mapping information is streamed
to the handset over a data
connection (charges may apply).
This has the benefit of the maps
being regularly updated and can
contain other useful information
such as petrol prices, parking and
weather information or details.
The KM900 has an A-GPS capable
GPS Reciever and Google Maps is
preloaded for your convenience.
