Maps
Use this application to pinpoint the location of the device, search for places, or get directions.
Before using Google Maps you must have at least an active data connection. The
Maps application does not cover every country or city..
Enable a Location Source

satellites:

• Inside a building or between buildings
• In a tunnel or underground passage
• In poor weather
• Around high-voltage or electromagnetic fields
• In a vehicle with tinted windows

Acknowledging Special Precautions and Industry Canada Notice
Cautions
Any changes or modifications to your device not expressly approved in this document could
void your warranty for this equipment, and void your authority to operate this equipment.
Only use approved batteries, antennas, and chargers. The use of any unauthorized accessories
may be dangerous and void the phone warranty if they cause damage or a defect to the
device.
Although your device is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of equipment and can be broken.
Avoid dropping, hitting, bending, or sitting on it.
Information to User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of a Class B digital
device. 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/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.
Warning: At very high volumes, prolonged listening to a headset can damage your
hearing.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Devices
The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy absorbed by the user
of a wireless device.
The SAR value of a device is the result of an extensive testing, measuring and calculation
process. It does not represent how much RF the device emits. All devices are tested at their
highest value in strict laboratory settings. But when in operation, the SAR of a device can be
substantially less than the level reported to Industry Canada. This is because of a variety of
factors including its proximity to a base station antenna, design and other factors. What is
important to remember is that each device meets strict federal guidelines. Variations in SARs
do not represent a variation in safety.
Health and Safety
178
All devices must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a substantial margin of safety.
As stated above, variations in SAR values between different model devices do not mean
variations in safety. SAR values at or below the federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered
safe for use by the public.
The highest reported SAR value for the N900W8 is:
Head: 0.?? W/kg
Body: 0.?? W/kg
This device has been tested and meets RF exposure guidelines when used with an accessory
that contains no metal and that positions the mobile device 0mm from the body.
