Yes, Boogies Theme is what he named it. I have used Map Theme Maker to make a slight change to the theme and also renamed it. It is a good theme as far as I can see.

ok thanks man......there is another one called Danmark, strange to me. Do you delete one and add his or do you rename it to an existing one?

I just renamed it and then imported it into the GPS. Plug your GPS into the computer and open Windows Explorer. Now click on the arrow next to the Zumo 595 line, next click on the arrow next to the Internal Storage line, next do the same for Themes line. Now click on the Map folder and that will open all the themes on your GPS on the right side. Drag the new theme to that folder and you are good to go.

This pic will show you the Windows Explorer view:

I'm gonna give this a try. Downloading the moose.zip file I got. Moving it to a folder in DOCUMENTS I got. But it took me a long time to figure out how to unzip it, been working on that for about a week, finally figured it out. Followed the instructions above to get the file to the device/internal memory/maps folder. Unplugged device from computer, then I spent hours searching for where I put it. It's supposed to be Settings/Map & Vehicle/Map Theme. Back and forth, plug in & wait, unplug & look. It's there when I look at the computer screen, it's not there when I look at the device screen.

Word- wait. Unplug the device from your computer and wait. It takes a while for the 595 to catch up. Like 10-12 minutes. And when scrolling down the list of themes, wait. Touch an arrow and wait 10 or 15 seconds. What you're looking for might pop up. If not, wait some more. It'll show up eventually.

bogie's theme- one 'O'. Not boogie's theme. This is important to computer illiterates like me. I'm looking for exactly what I'm told to look for.

Sorry for any confusion on this. If it has boogies theme 01 then that means that boogies theme was already there.

Yeah, I got it. I'm thinking I should move all the ones country-named from the 595 to a folder on my computer. Then I'll still have them but they won't clutter the 595 and might even free some space.

ETA: Hey! That worked excellent! The Garmin one stays, I moved all the country ones to a folder I created on my computer. I then downloaded & unzipped the 'personal' theme (from -> viewtopic.php?f=12&t=105) and copied it onto my 595LM. I'm give them all a try. Anyone think if it would be problematic if I shared these on a motorcycle forum?

Yeah, I thought I recognized your username also. I sold the 660 on eBay and got 406.00 for it. I'm a mod on vulcanbagger.com.

It's in a post on page 1. It's a zip file named MOOSE. The theme itself is named BOGEY'S THEME.
