Obey all safety messages that follow this symbol to avoid possible injury or death. WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury. CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury. CAUTION used without the safety alert symbol indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in property damage. Removing original equipment, adding accessories or modifying your vehicle could affect the vehicle’s safety or make it illegal to operate in some jurisdictions. Follow all product instructions and all instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual regarding accessories or modifications. Consult your country’s and/or state’s laws regarding operation of a vehicle with any accessories or modifications. It is your sole responsibility to place, secure and use your Mio in a manner that will not cause accidents, personal injury or property damage. Always observe safe driving practices. Do not mount your Mio in a way that may interfere with the safe operation of the vehicle, the deployment of air bags or other safety equipment. Do not operate your Mio while driving. Before you use your Mio for the first time, familiarize yourself with your device and its operation. On main roads, the distance to an exit calculated by your Mio may be further than the distance shown on road signs. Road signs show the distance to the start of an exit while your Mio shows the distance to the next intersection, i.e., the end of the exit ramp or road. To prepare to exit a road, always follow distance information on road signs. The use of information regarding safety or speed camera locations may be subject to local laws in the country of use. You are responsible for checking that you can legally use the information in your country or in the country where the information will be used. Do not handle your Mio while it is hot. Let the product cool, out of direct sunlight. At full power, prolonged listening to your Mio via headphones or earphones can damage the ear of the user. Do not expose your Mio to direct sunlight in an unattended vehicle for prolonged periods. Overheating may damage the unit. To discourage theft, do not leave your Mio, mounting bracket or any cables in plain view in an unattended vehicle. Warning Notice to Drivers in the United States State law may prohibit drivers in states such as Arizona, California and Minnesota from mounting objects on their windshields while driving. Please make sure you research and follow your most current State laws. An alternative mounting option may be provided in the box with your product; or see our website for additional mounting alternatives. Mio does not take any responsibility for any fines, penalties, or damages that may be incurred as a result of disregarding this notice.

7 Mounting your Mio in a vehicle CAUTION:  Never mount your Mio where the driver’s field of vision is blocked.  If the windscreen is tinted with a reflective coating, it may be athermic and impact the GPS reception. In this instance, please mount your Mio where there is a “clear area” - usually just beneath the rear-view mirror.  To protect your Mio against sudden surges in current, connect the in-car charger only after the car engine has been started. Enabling Traffic (TMC) Reception Traffic information is available in selected models and countries only. If your Mio has a built-in TMC receiver, you can receive live traffic information via the in-car charger which is used as an antenna. For information on using traffic information on your Mio, see the Software User Manual.

10 How do I charge the battery? The battery may not be fully charged when you use your Mio for the first time. CAUTION: For optimal performance of the battery, note the following:  Do not charge the battery when the temperature is high (e.g. in direct sunlight).  There is no need to fully discharge the battery before charging.  When leaving your Mio for long periods, turn off your Mio to save battery power. The battery indicator light on your Mio indicates the level of internal battery charge:  Green - battery full  Orange - battery charging How do I charge the battery in a vehicle? To charge your Mio in a vehicle, plug the in-car charger into on the left side of your Mio and the other end into the vehicle power socket. How do I charge the battery via my computer? For optimal charging results, ensure that your Mio is turned off while connected to your computer. 1. Turn on your computer. 2. Plug the large end of the USB cable (may be sold separately) directly into a USB port on your computer (not a USB hub) and plug the small end into on the left side of your Mio. CAUTION: When your Mio is turned on and connected to a computer, it is recognized as an external mass-storage device. Do NOT delete any files that are pre-installed on your Mio. Deleting the files can cause your Mio to crash. How do I charge the battery at home or work? You can use an optional home charger to charge the battery. To charge your Mio using a mains power socket, plug the home charger cable into on the left side of your Mio and the mains power charger into the power socket. The home charger is not included with all models and may be purchased separately (see www.mio.com for details).

12 Reference What is GPS? The Global Positioning System (GPS) is available at any time, free of charge, and is accurate to within 5m (15ft). GPS navigation is made possible by a network of satellites that orbit the Earth at around 20,200km (12,552mi). Each satellite transmits a range of signals which are utilized by GPS receivers, such as your Mio, to determine an exact location. Although a GPS receiver can detect signals from up to 12 satellites at any time, only four signals are required to provide a position or "GPS fix" (latitude and longitude), for vehicle navigation systems. How does my Mio receive GPS signals? Your Mio receives GPS signals via the internal GPS antenna. To guarantee the optimum GPS signal strength, ensure your Mio is outdoors, or in a vehicle outdoors, and has an unobstructed view of the sky. GPS reception is not usually affected by weather, however, very heavy rain or snow may have a negative effect on your reception. Caring for your Mio Taking good care of your Mio will ensure trouble-free operation and reduce the risk of damage to your Mio:  Keep your Mio away from excessive moisture and extreme temperatures.  Avoid exposing your Mio to direct sunlight or strong ultraviolet light for extended periods of time.  Do not place anything on top of your Mio or drop objects on your Mio.  Do not drop your Mio or subject it to severe shock.  Do not subject your Mio to sudden and severe temperature changes. This could cause moisture condensation inside the unit, which could damage your Mio. In the event of moisture condensation, allow your Mio to dry out completely before use.  The screen surface can easily be scratched. Avoid touching it with sharp objects. Non-adhesive generic screen protectors designed specifically for use on portable devices with LCD panels may be used to help protect the screen from minor scratches.  Never clean your Mio when it is turned on. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the screen and the exterior of your Mio.  Do not use paper towels to clean the screen.  Never attempt to disassemble, repair or make any modifications to your Mio. Disassembly, modification or any attempt at repair could cause damage to your Mio and even bodily injury or property damage and will void any warranty.  Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases or explosive materials in the same compartment as your Mio, its parts or accessories.
