PHONE SAFETY

Make sure the following warnings have been read and fully understood before using the phone features.

Failure to use the phone features safely could result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

WARNING

Do not adjust the touchscreen controls, or allow the system to distract the driver, while the vehicle is moving.

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings and cautions have been read and understood before operating the touchscreen. See TOUCHSCREEN SAFETY.

WARNING

Switch off the phone in areas with a high explosion risk, e.g., filling stations, fuel storage areas, or chemical factories. Further high explosion risks are found where the air contains fuel vapour, chemicals, or metal dust. The phone could trigger an explosion or cause a fire.

WARNING

Always store the phone securely. In an accident, loose items can cause injury.

WARNING

The functioning of cardiac pacemakers or hearing aids may be impaired when the phone is in use. Check with a doctor or the device's manufacturer whether any such devices that the vehicle's occupants are using are sufficiently protected against high-frequency energy.

WARNING

Even when using the Bluetooth® wireless technology hands-free feature, using the phone while driving is dangerous. The use of a phone diverts the driver's attention from the traffic situation. When using the phone, stop at an appropriate place where other vehicles are not endangered or inconvenienced.

WARNING

Drivers should talk on the phone only when it is safe to do so and when such use does not distract the driver from the road.

WARNING

Drivers should never text message, access social media, check emails, or search the internet while driving. Using any of the these features while driving diverts attention from the road.

The Health Industry Manufacturers' Association recommends that a minimum separation of 22 cm (9 in) is maintained between a wireless phone antenna and a pacemaker. The recommendation is to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker. The recommendations are consistent with the independent research by, and recommendations of, Wireless Technology Research.
