NOTE This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. 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 or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver.

COMPASS SAFE DISTANCE SIONYX Nightwave devices output Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) that can cause inaccurate readings on a nearby compass. Mounting the chartplotter far enough from the compass will prevent compass inaccuracy due to EMI.

The SIONYX Nightwave has a Compass Safe Distance found in the installation manual. Measure the distance from the center of the compass to the closest edge of the Nightwave.
