Operating Instructions WARNING WARNING This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can result in serious injury or death. DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR BOAT. Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the boat in a safe location before performing these functions. Failure to do so may result in an accident. KEEP THE VOLUME AT LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL HEAR OUTSIDE NOISES WHILE DRIVING. Excessive volume levels that obscure sounds such as emergency vessel sirens or approaching vessels can be dangerous and may result in an accident. LISTENING AT LOUD VOLUME LEVELS IN A BOAT MAY ALSO CAUSE HEARING DAMAGE. MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING. Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of the boat and cause an accident. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER. Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock. DO NOT CONNECT A POWER SUPPLY OTHER THAN A DC 12V NEGATIVE GROUND TYPE. Failure to do so may result in accident or fire. KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BOLTS OR SCREWS OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately. USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING FUSES. Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock. USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS. Use for other than its designed application may result in fire, electric shock or other injury. CAUTION This symbol means important instructions.
