PRECAUTIONS AND NOTICES

Important Information

Please Read Carefully Before Using This Product.

This product is intended to safely provide turn by turn instructions to get you to a desired destination. Please make certain that all persons using this navigation system carefully read these precautions and the following instructions fully.

1)This product is not a substitute for your personal judgment. Any route suggestions made by this navigation system may never supersede any local traffic regulations or your personal judgment and/or knowledge of safe driving practices. Do not follow route suggestions if the navigation system instructs you to perform an unsafe or illegal maneuver, places you in an unsafe situation, or routes you into an area which you consider unsafe.

2)Glance at the screen only when necessary and safe to do so. If prolonged viewing of the screen is necessary, pull over in a safe and legal manner and location.

3)Do not input destinations, change settings, or access any functions requiring a prolonged view of the monitor and/or remote control while you are driving. Pull over in a safe and legal manner and location before attempting to access the system.

4)Do not use the navigation system to route you to emergency services. Not all locations of emergency services such as police and fire stations, hospitals and clinics are contained in the database. Please use your own judgment and ask for directions in these situations.

5)The map database used in the navigation system is the most recent map data available at the time of production. Because of changes in streets and neighborhoods, there may be situations where the navigation system is not able to route you to your desired destination. In these cases, use your own judgment.

6)The map database is designed to provide you with route suggestions and does not take into account the relative safety of a suggested route or of factors which may affect the time required to reach your destination. The system does not reflect road closures or construction, road characteristics (i.e. type of road surface, slope or grade, weight or height restrictions, etc.), traffic congestion, weather conditions, or any other factors which may affect the safety or timing of your driving experience. Use your own personal judgment if the navigation system is unable to provide you with an alternate route.

7)There may be situations where the navigation system displays the vehicle's location erroneously. Use your own driving judgment in this situation, taking into account current driving conditions. Please be aware that in this situation the navigation system should correct the vehicle's position automatically. However, there may be times where you may have to correct the position yourself. If this is the case, pull over in a safe and legal manner and location before attempting operation.

8)Make certain that the volume level of the navigation system is set to a level which still allows you to hear outside traffic and emergency vehicles.

If there is anything in the manual about the operation of the navigation system which you are uncertain about, please contact your local Alpine authorized navigation dealer or Alpine at 1-888-NAV-HELP(1-888-628-4357)before using the navigation system.

WARNINGS

Points to Observe for Safe Usage

Read this manual carefully before using this system. It contains instructions on how to use this product in a safe and effective manner. Alpine cannot be responsible for problems resulting from failure to observe the instructions in this manual.

This manual uses various pictorial displays to show you how to use this product safely and to alert you to potential dangers resulting from improper connections and operation. Following are explanations of these pictorial displays. It is important to fully understand the meanings of these pictorial displays in order to use this manual and the system properly.

CAUTION

This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can result in injury or material property damage.

HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.

Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the product. Return it to your authorized ALPINE dealer or the nearest ALPINE Service Center for repairing.

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 VEHICLE.

Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle in a safe location before performing these functions. Failure to do so may result in an accident.

KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL HEAR OUTSIDE NOISE WHILE DRIVING.

Failure to do so may result in an accident.

MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING.

Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of the vehicle and cause an accident.

DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.

Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.

USE THIS PRODUCT AS SPECIFIED.

Use for other than its designed application may result in fire, electric shock or other injury.

KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.

DO NOT PLACE HANDS, FINGERS OR FOREIGN OBJECTS IN INSERTION SLOTS OR GAPS.

Doing so may result in personal injury or damage to the product.

USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING FUSES.

Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.

DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.

Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire.

PRECAUTIONS

Temperature

Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between +45°C (+113°F) and -0°C(+32°F) before turning your unit on.

Fuse Replacement

When replacing the fuse(s), the replacement must be of the same amperage as shown on the fuse holder. If the fuse(s) blows more than once, carefully check all electrical connections for shorted circuitry. Also have your vehicle’s voltage regulator checked.

Servicing the Unit

If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the unit yourself. Return it to your ALPINE dealer or the nearest ALPINE Service Station for servicing.

Installation Location

Make sure the PMD-B100will not be exposed to:

• Direct sun and heat • Excessive dust

• High humidity • Excessive vibrations

Characteristics of LCD Panel

After turning the system off, a slight ghost of the image will remain temporarily. This is an effect peculiar to LCD technology and is normal.

Under cold temperature conditions, the screen may lose contrast temporarily. After a short warmup period, it will return to normal.

The LCD panel is manufactured using an extremely high precision manufacturing technology. Its effective pixel ratio is over 99.99%. This means that 0.01% of the pixels could be either always ON or OFF.

Using Headphones

If ACC or the monitor's power source is turned off, a loud noise may be produced through the headphone jack. Be sure to remove the headphones from your ears before you turn the monitor off.
