■ Maximum transmission power 10 watts,
■ Installation of the phone in a suitable spot, consider relevant Notice.

Seek advice on predetermined installation points for the external antenna or equipment holder and ways of using devices with a transmission power exceeding 10 watts.

Use of a handsfree attachment without external antenna with mobile telephone standards GSM
900/1800/1900 and UMTS is only permitted if the maximum transmission power of the mobile telephone is 2 watts for GSM 900 or 1 watt for the other types.

For reasons of safety, do not use the phone while driving. Even use of a handsfree set can be a distraction while driving.

Operation of radio equipment and mobile telephones which fail to meet above mentioned mobile telephone standards is only permitted using an antenna located outside of the vehicle.

Mobile telephones and radio equipment may lead to
malfunctions in the vehicle electronics when operated inside the vehicle with no exterior antenna, unless the above mentioned regulations are observed.
