Important Safety Notices and Warnings
Global Positioning System
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based system that provides location and timing information around the globe. GPS is operated and controlled under the sole responsibility of the Government of the United States of America, which is responsible for its availability and accuracy. Any changes in GPS availability and accuracy, or in environmental conditions, may impact the operation of this device. TomTom does not accept any liability for the availability and accuracy of GPS.
Use with care
Use of TomTom products while driving still means that you need to drive with due care and attention.
Aircraft and hospitals
Use of devices with an antenna is prohibited on most aircraft, in many hospitals and in many other locations. This device must not be used in these environments.
SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING DRIVING IN CALIFORNIA AND MINNESOTA
California Vehicle Code Section 26708 "Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver's View" permits mounting of a navigation device on the windshield as follows: "A portable Global Positioning System (GPS), which may be mounted in a seven-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver or in a five-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield nearest to the driver and outside of an airbag deployment zone, if the system is used only for door-to-door navigation while the motor vehicle is being operated." Drivers in California should not use a suction mount on their side or rear windows.
Note: This section of the California Vehicle Code applies to anyone driving in California, not just California residents.
Minnesota State Legislature Statutes Section 169.71, subdivision 1, section 2 provides that "A person shall not drive or operate with any objects suspended between the driver and the wind-shield other than sun visors and rearview mirrors and electronic toll collection devices."
Note: this Minnesota Stature applies to anyone driving in Minnesota, not just Minnesota residents.
TomTom Inc. bears no responsibility for any fines, penalties or damage that may be incurred by disregarding this notice. While driving in any state with windshield mounting restrictions, TomTom recommends the use of the supplied Adhesive Mounting Disk or its Alternative Mounting Kit, which includes multiple options for mounting TomTom devices on the dashboard and the air vents. See http://www.tomtom.com for more information about these mounting options.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Statement
Radio and television interference
This equipment radiates radio frequency energy and if not used properly - that is, in strict accordance with the instructions in this manual - may cause interference to radio communications and television reception.
This device has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
This equipment was tested for FCC compliance under conditions that included the use of shielded cables and connectors between it and the peripherals. It is important that you use shielded cables and connectors to reduce the possibility of causing radio and television interference. Shielded cables, suitable for the product range, can be obtained from an authorized dealer. If the user modifies the equipment or its peripherals in any way, and these modifications are not approved by TomTom, the FCC may withdraw the user’s right to operate the equipment. For customers in the USA, the following booklet prepared by the Federal Communications Commission may be of help: "How to Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems."
