screen Avoid any contact with mineral turpentine etcdamage the antiglare layer or plastic bezelTo prevent UV damage to the plastic bezel it is recommended that the sun cover be fittedwhen the unit is not in use for an extended periodCleaning the media port doorClean the media port door regularly to avoid salt on the surface causing waterto leak into the card slotChecking the keysMake sure that no keys are stuck in the down position If one is stuck wiggle the key to free itback to normalChecking the connectorsThe connectors should be checked by visual inspection onlyPush the connector plugs

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
