Zumo 590 Splashscreen

Post by Steve1020 » Wed Jun 27, 2018 10:03 pm

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...
