or storage facilities, and areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as
grain, dust, or metal powders. Please be aware that sparks in such areas could cause an
explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES
When in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere or where flammable
materials exist, the device should be turned off and the user should obey all signs and
instructions. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily
injury or even death. Users are advised not to use the equipment at refueling points
such as service or gas stations, and are reminded of the need to observe restrictions
on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots, chemical plants, or where blasting
operations are in progress. Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often,
but not always, clearly marked. These include fueling areas, below deck on boats, fuel
or chemical transfer or storage facilities, and areas where the air contains chemicals or
particles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders.6
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR RF EXPOSURE
• Avoid using your device near metal structures (for example, the steel frame of a
building).
• Avoid using your device near strong electromagnetic sources, such as microwave
ovens, sound speakers, TV and radio.
• Use only original manufacturer-approved accessories, or accessories that do not
contain any metal.
• Use of non-original manufacturer-approved accessories may violate your local RF
exposure guidelines and should be avoided.
INTERFERENCE WITH MEDICAL EQUIPMENT FUNCTIONS
This device may cause medical equipment to malfunction. The use of this device is
forbidden in most hospitals and medical clinics.
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your device

1.8 Switching Between Windows Vista®
and SnapVUE™
Your Mobile Computer features two operational modes: Windows Vista®
and SnapVUE™.
Windows Vista® SnapVUE™
SnapVUE™ is an instant-on mode that gives you up-to-date weather
information, SMS messaging, and a Direct Push function that enables
you to receive instant work e-mails (Outlook E-mail) from your company’s
Exchange Server mailbox. You can switch to SnapVUE mode anytime,
whether Windows Vista® is running or off.
To switch to SnapVUE mode
• Press the SnapVUE button.
Tip Switching to SnapVUE does not immediately set Windows Vista® to
sleep mode nor does it turn off the system. To save battery power, it is
recommended that you set Windows Vista® to sleep mode or shut down the
system if you will not use it for a period of time.32 Getting Started
To switch back to Windows Vista®
1. Press the SnapVUE button.
2. If there is no display on the screen, it means that Windows Vista®
has been idle for some time and has entered sleep mode. To wake
Windows Vista® from sleep mode, slide and release the POWER/HOLD
switch that is located on the right side of your Mobile Computer.
Notes • Windows Vista® and SnapVUE display in landscape orientation only.
• SnapVUE does not operate until you have powered on your Mobile
Computer the first time. After that, SnapVUE is in instant-on mode.
• To always keep SnapVUE in instant-on mode, do not remove the battery
from your Mobile Computer. If you remove and reinsert the battery, you
need to start up the Mobile Computer in Windows Vista® first before you
can access SnapVUE mode.
The following are synchronized between Windows Vista® and SnapVUE:
• Battery status
• Date and time
• Backlight level
• Sound volume and mute settings
You can maintain the same set of Outlook e-mails, calendar appointments,
contacts, and tasks in both Windows Vista® and SnapVUE by synchronizing
these information with the Exchange Server. To do so, make sure you select
E-mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks as your sync items when you set up
your Outlook E-mail account in SnapVUE. See “Set up your Outlook E-mail
account” in Chapter 4 for details.
Note In order to synchronize your Outlook E-mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks
on Windows Vista®, you need to have Microsoft® Office Outlook® installed on
Windows Vista®.
