Introduction to the subject

CAUTION

Do not save any important data or that which has not been backed up on the

connected audio sources. ŠKODA assumes no responsibility for lost or dam-

aged files or connected audio sources.

When changing or connecting an audio source, this may cause sudden

changes in volume. Reduce the volume before changing or connecting an au-

dio source.

When connecting an external audio source, the external source information

messages can be displayed. These messages must be observed and confirmed

if necessary (e.g. enabling data transfer etc).

Note

The national copyright laws that apply in your country must be observed.

On the manufacturing date, this unit was classified as a class 1 laser prod-

uct in accordance with the national/international standards

DIN EN 60825-1: 2008-05 and DHHS Rules 21 CFR, Subchapter J. The la-

ser used in this class 1 laser product is so weak that there is no risk of dan-

ger when operated correctly.

This product is designed such that the laser is restricted to the inside of

Infotainment. However, the installed laser could be classified in a higher

class were the housing to be removed. For this reason, never remove Info-

tainment housing.

CAUTION

Be sure to remove the CD/DVD before you try to insert a new CD/DVD. Oth-

erwise you can damage the drive inside Infotainment.
