Zumo 590 Splashscreen

Post by Steve1020 »

Is it still possible to change the startup screen on the 590LM? I just upgraded from my trusty Zumo 550 and had the ability to put my contact info on a .bmp and pick that as a splashscreen n case it ever was 'lost'.

I can't find anything on Google to indicate that this is possible, but did find 1 link that had an answer for the 595, but unfortunately, would not work on the 590.

There is no way that I'm aware of to change it on the 590.

That's too bad. I was hoping to do the same as Steve1020. Had a custom screen on my 550.

Yeah seems to be another of Garmin's improvements. Just like not providing the ability to have a PIN security on start up.

You can't change the initial splash screen (i.e. the 'Garmin' name) - however you can hack the warning screen text that comes up next... and text on most screens...

Attached a PDF of the steps and examples...

Thanks Bogie, Just upgraded from a 345/395 to a 595.

Been trying to do a splash screen like I had on my old Streetpilots and Zumo 220.

I've just changed the warning screen so far.

Now I'm trying to remove/change the Automobile Association Roadside Assistance information on the Where Am I? screen.

Would be better if it was my Insurance company's recovery details, and possibly if I can change the logo, but I guess if the "Garmin" splash screen can't be changed, the "AA" logo can't be changed either, but changing the contact details would be handy.

I know that this is an old thread, but just to add to it that a customer 590 or 595 splash screen CAN indeed be done - I've just done it. :-) The technique detailed here:

https://www.gpspower.net/garmin-receive ... a-etc.html

does work for the Zumo 590 and 595, but the file size is important. On my 590 with 595 4.60 firmware, 25kb was too big, 10kb loaded happily. I don't know what the actual limits are, though.
