Important safety information PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING PRODUCT IN VEHICLE This is the safety alert symbol. It is used to alert you to potential personal injury hazards. 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.

Home charger-specific safety information To charge your Mio from the mains power, use the home charger (Model: MII050100; Input: 100-240V AC 50-60Hz; Output: 5V DC 1A Max) supplied by Mio as an accessory (may be sold separately). Using other home chargers with your Mio could result in serious injury or property damage. Never use the charger if the plug or cord is damaged. Do not expose the charger to moisture or water. Do not use the charger in a high moisture environment. Exposure to water may cause electrical sparks or fires. Never touch the charger when your hands or feet are wet.

Replace the charger if it is damaged or exposed to excess moisture. Internal battery-specific safety information Your Mio contains a non-replaceable internal lithium-ion polymer battery. The battery may burst or explode if mishandled, releasing hazardous chemicals. To reduce the risk of fire or burns, do not disassemble, crush or puncture the battery. Recycle or dispose of the battery safely and properly according to local laws and regulations. Do not dispose of the battery in fire or water. Only use the correct home charger (may be sold separately) or in-car charger supplied by Mio to charge your Mio internal battery. Only use your Mio internal battery with your Mio unit. The Mio battery will stop charging when the ambient temperature is less than 0ºC (32ºF) or more than 45ºC (113ºF). Failure to adhere to these warnings and cautions may lead to death, serious injury or property damage. Mio disclaims all liability for installation or use of your Mio that causes or contributes to death, injury or property damage or that violates any law.

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: ƒ Keep your Mio away from excessive moisture and extreme temperatures. ƒ Avoid exposing your Mio to direct sunlight or strong ultraviolet light for extended periods of time. ƒ Do not place anything on top of your Mio or drop objects on your Mio. ƒ Do not drop your Mio or subject it to severe shock. ƒ 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. ƒ 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. ƒ 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. ƒ Do not use paper towels to clean the screen. 11
Page: 12
ƒ 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. ƒ Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases or explosive materials in the same compartment as your Mio, its parts or accessories. Troubleshooting If you encounter a problem you cannot solve, contact an authorized service centre for assistance. Problems Solutions Your Mio does not turn on when using battery power. The remaining battery power may be too low to operate your Mio. Charge the battery using the in-car charger, home charger (may be sold separately) or USB cable, then try again. Screen responds slowly. The remaining battery power may be too low to operate your Mio. If the problem still persists, reset your Mio. Screen freezes. Reset your Mio. Screen is hard to read. Increase the screen brightness. Cannot establish a connection with a computer. Ensure that your Mio and your computer are both turned on before trying to establish a connection. Make sure that the cable is securely plugged into the USB port on your computer and on your Mio. Connect the USB cable directly to your computer, not a USB hub.
