Create A Custom Nuvi Splashscreen

 

Thought I’d share this with you. Being bored with winter and awaiting maps to load, I created some custom splash screens.
This was done for my Nuvi 2460LMT with the 5” screen. I pulled up one of the 2460’s included jpg’s and discovered the default resolution was 480 X 232..
You can check your own units default resolution by opening a jpg with MS Paint, then click on Image, then Attributes, this will give you the resolution.
There are plenty of free jpg’s on the web, just try NOT to download those without enormous resolutions so you don’t loose clarity when shrinking.

You can create your own with this free online jpg editor, no unnecessary programs to put on your PC.
Here you can change resolution, add text, with tons of fonts, and other customizations.
It does a very nice job modifying the jpgs’s. You can create as many as you like since they don’t take up much room, usually less than 50KB.

Click on any of the links to view some of the jpgs I created for my 2460LMT with 5” screen. They may even work on smaller screens.
Once the picture comes up, if you like it, you can simply RIGHT CLICK on it, and save it to your Nuvi’s Picture or Jpg folder,
then go to your units Picture Viewer and change it to the default splash screen. They may even work on smaller screens

Good idea

Thanks for reminding me that you could do this.

Many Possibilities Abound

The option is there to create your own if thats what it takes to turn you and your Nuvi on.

I created a screen that says the unit is locked and is being tracked. Please contact the owner via email if found. And I included my email address. The thought being that if it got lost or stolen, there might be a chance someone would return it. At least they'd know who to contact.

There is a thread about this on POI-Factory.

Cool

Gotta have to look into this.

hope someone knowledgable finds yours

If I found a lost GPS I would try to return it to the owner. But if I found one that claimed it and I were being tracked I would realize the owner was trying to scam me, and I doubt that I would make any effort to return the device to such a person.
