Unit 6. Important Use Tips：
1. To use the Interactive Maps, please place the robot at the main entrance on the upper left of the map first; after hearing the voice instruction, place the robot at any secondary entrance, and start coding according to the voice instructions.
2. When the Tale-Bot Pro is at the main entrance, secondary entrance, or the starting point, the voice instruction can be simply stopped and switched to the new voice instruction of the new place you put the robot.
3. When the Tale-Bot Pro is already moving on the map, you can only press the Play button to stop the voice instruction.
4. When the voice instruction is playing, pressing any button other than the Play button to stop the voice instructions is useless. You have to wait for the voice instruction to be finished, then you can press the buttons to program.--- This helps to improve the patience and sense of rules of the kids. If you really have to interrupt the voice of Tale-Bot Pro, you have to press the Play button to inform it
5. The Interactive Maps and interactive stickers are suggested to be used separately!
6. Once entering one themed Interactive Stickers, Tale-Bot Pro would not give any response to other themed Interactive Maps or Interactive Stickers. Thus, if you finish using one themed Interactive Map, and want to use the Interactive Stickers, please restart Tale-Bot Pro.
