· If the player is left in a car parked
in the sun, be sure to choose a
location in the car where the player
will not be subjected to the direct
rays of the sun.
· Since a strong magnet is used for
the speakers, keep personal credit
cards using magnetic coding or
spring-wound watches away from
the player to prevent possible
