DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER Attempts to disassemble or alter this product can lead to accidental fires or electrical shock. KEEP SMALL ARTICLES OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN Keep small articles (wire-ties, etc.) out of reach of children. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately. USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND Use only in cars with a 12 volt negative (–) ground electrical system. (Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may result in fire, etc. BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL Before doing any electrical wiring, disconnect the cable from the negative (–) terminal of the battery. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to electrical shorts. KEEP ELECTRICAL CABLES TOGETHER TO AVOID OPERATING HAZARDS Dress the wiring to keep them from interfering with the operation of the steering wheel, gear lever, brake pedals, etc. DO NOT CUT AWAY ANY WIRE INSULATION TO USE ITS POWER FOR OTHER EQUIPMENT Tapping power from wiring to supply voltage to another piece of equipment could exceed the current carrying capacity of that wire. This could result in fire or electric shock. DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER VEHICLE OPERATION Do not install in locations which might create hazards for the vehicle occupants or hinder vehicle operation (such as the steering wheel or gear shift) by obstructing forward vision or hampering movement etc. DO NOT DAMAGE PIPES OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take precautions so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, tanks or electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions may result in fire. DO NOT USE NUTS OR BOLTS IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM FOR INSTALLATION OR GROUND CONNECTIONS Never use safety-related parts such as bolts or nuts in the steering or brake systems or tanks to make wiring installations or ground connections. Using such parts could disable control of the vehicle and cause fire etc. HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS When problems appear, stop using the system immediately and contact the dealer from whom you purchased the equipment. Some problems which may warrant immediate attention include a lack of sound, noxious odors or smoke being emitted from the unit, or foreign objects dropped inside the unit. DO NOT OPERATE THE EQUIPMENT OR LOOK AT THE SCREEN WHILE DRIVING Do not change settings while driving. If operation requiring a prolonged view of the display is required, stop the vehicle in a safe location before attempting operation. DO NOT INSTALL THE MONITOR NEAR THE PASSENGER SEAT AIR BAG Ensure that the location chosen for the monitor does not interfere with the operation of the passenger seat air bag. This will prevent the triggered air bag from launching the display towards passengers, possible causing injury. HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS The wiring and installation of this unit requires special technical skill and experience. To ensure safety, always contact the dealer where you purchased this unit to have the work done. DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR DUST Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence of moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into this unit may cause smoke or fire. MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS Failure to make the correct connections can cause fire or accident to occur. ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR PINCHED Route the cables and wiring so as not to be crimped by moving parts like seat rails or to make contact with sharp spots which could damage the wiring. DO NOT RAISE THE VOLUME EXCESSIVELY 2 Keep the volume at a level where you can still hear outside noises while driving. Driving while unable to hear outside sounds could cause an accident.
