bMap/location name data of this camera
Before using the location data functions, make sure to read “USER LICENSE 
AGREEMENT FOR MAP DATA AND LOCATION NAME DATA” (

F19) and agree 

to the terms.

• The maps and location name information (Points of Interest: POI) are as of 

April 2013.
The maps and location name information will not be updated.

• The details of geological formations are displayed simplistically according to 

the scale of a map. The scale of a map and level of detail of the location data 
vary depending on country and region.
If the latitude becomes higher, the horizontal and vertical scales displayed 
on the monitor vary, therefore displayed geological formations differ from 
the actual formations. Use the maps and location name information only as 
a guide.

• The detailed map data and location name information (Points of Interest: 

POI) of the People’s Republic of China (“China”) and the Republic of Korea 
are not provided for the COOLPIX S9700.

bNotes about record location data functions and log recording

• When Record location data in Location data options of the Location 

data options menu is set to On or during log recording, record location data 
functions and log recording function will continue to operate even after the 
camera is turned off (

A86).

The electromagnetic waves emitted by this camera may disrupt the 
electronic systems of the airplane or the instruments of the hospital. When 
use of the camera is prohibited or restricted during airplane takeoffs and 
landings or inside a hospital, end log recording, set Record location data 
to Off, and then turn off the camera.

• An individual may be identified from still images or movies that have been 

recorded with location data. Observe caution when you transfer still images 
or movies recorded with location data, or  log files to a third party or upload 
them to a network such as the Internet where the public can view them. 
Make sure to read “Disposing of Data Storage Devices” (

Avi).
