6 CAUTION
• This system displays gyro-compass bearing and outputs the bearing information to the outside. Although the safety design such as the alarm function against failure, etc., is provided, there is no perfect safety design at the present time. In addition, as this system has many important functions, it is hard to say that anyone can use this system without failure. Failures or malfunctions of this system may cause distress, and full attention should be paid on use of this system. User's responsibility and obligation in insuring safe navigation and the proper exercise of navigational techniques is in no way reduced by the use of this equipment. The following cautions should be observed. 1_ Always perform daily check to maintain normal system condition. 2. When anomalies are detected in the result of daily check, investigate and repair at once to recover to normal conditions and request advice of TOKIMEC service engineer. 3. When the alarm system operates during use, always check to confirm the cause and recover the troubled point. Warning regarding kinds of function (See page 1-2.)
