United States of America Department of Defense. All maintenance and operations are also managed by the United States of America

Department of Defense. Should the system be modified and adjusted, the precision and operation of GPS related systems might be affected.

Any wireless communication products (mobile phone, radio, speed detection unit etc) might affect the GPS signal, resulting in a poor signal.

For safety reasons, do not operate this system while driving a vehicle.

The planned navigational route is for reference only; changes in roadside conditions (one way streets, no right turns) may happen so please respond accordingly to the situation and decide whether or not to follow the planned course.

When placing this system in the vehicle, please secure with brackets on the car to ensure safety. The recommended installation location is illustrated below.
