Information
Caution
Observe the following cautions when using this
unit.
❑Keep the sound volume at an appropriate level.

unit.
❑Do not use the product where it is exposed to water,
moisture, or dust.
Exposure of the unit to water, moisture, or dust may lead to

sure that the unit does not get wet in car washes or on rainy
days.
Observe the following cautions when
installing.
❑Refer wiring and installation to qualified service
personnel.
Installation of this unit requires special skills and experience.
For maximum safety, have it installed by your dealer.
Panasonic is not liable for any problems resulting from your
own installation of the unit.
❑Follow the instructions to install and wire the prod-
uct.
Not following the instructions to properly install and wire the
product could cause an accident or fire.
❑Take care not to damage the leads.
When wiring, take care not to damage the leads. Prevent
them from getting caught in the vehicle chassis, screws, and
moving parts such as seat rails. Do not scratch, pull, bend or
twist the leads. Do not run them near heat sources or place
