Ask Garmin: Can I personalize my nuvi's start-up screen?

12 March 2010 @ 2:43 PM  / Ask Garmin / Automotive Blog /


Absolutely! Any nϋvi with a photo viewer, which is the majority of nϋvis, will let you customize the start-up screen with a JPEG image. Whether you want to see a photo of your smiling kids or maybe you're a fleet operator that wants to display your company's logo, you can personalize the nϋvi with a few easy steps. This step-by-step tutorial explains the process using the nϋvi 1xxx series, but the steps are similar for most nϋvis.

6259 To get started, from the home screen go to "Tools" and then select "Picture Viewer." Once in the Picture Viewer, select the image you want for your start-up screen. The image you select will go from a thumbnail to a large, full screen image.



5414 Click on the "i" icon on the left tool bar. Once you do, you'll see a thumbnail of the image and the bottom of the screen will offer you the option to "Display at power on?" Check the box, and now get ready to admire your handiwork. The image you've selected will now be displayed when you power on your nuvi. 


New Picture (22) If you don't like the preloaded images in the nϋvi , you can add your own image to the nϋvi's Picture Viewer, by connecting your nϋvi to your computer via the USB cable and then drag and drop your selected image into the JPEG folder in the Garmin nϋvi drive.
