pocketgpsworld.comIf it has escaped your notice, tomorrow is Red Nose Day!

This year PocketGPSWorld is doing its little bit by creating a Red Nose Day Splash Screen (TomTom/Garmin) and Custom Cursor (TomTom Only) pack for your SatNav Devices (sorry to all the other GPS owners).

Show your support for Red Nose Day and decorate your Satnav with the RND SatNav theme splash screen.

Available in both Standard (Go Classic, 300, 500, 700, ONE and RIDER) and Wide-Screen (One XL, x20, x30 and x40) formats, the splash screens are free to download. All we ask is that you make a donation on the Red Nose Day web-site here.

Download the RedNose day pack (two splash screens and a custom cursor) here.

Hi

Good work Very Happy

I have downloaded the 2 splash screens to my GARMIN 710 there great Laughing

For anyone who dose not know Sad

All you do is save them on your memory card in your Picture folder
then switch on your GARMIN click on TOOLS then PICTURE VIEWER then when your get to the Picture in the top left click DISPLAY AT POWER ON?
then it says DO YOU WANT TO SAVE THIS IMAGE AS YOUR SPLASH SCREEN? you click yes

Then your done Cool

Thanks, I've edited the intro. The only issue we were concerned was that if you do this on a Garmin the original splash screen is then wiped and can't be retrieved? Is that true?

Hi

As always we back up before doing anything (made that mistake before) Embarassed
Anything that you have save into the Picture file can then be changed to the Splash screen Wink

But why would any one want the Original when any jpg will work I have a photo off my kids on as extra securty you can say the sat nav's yours when it starts up with a pic off my kids (same idea on my cridit card) Cool

so it you have the original splash screen saved in picture file then you can put it back on.
But if you have not backup then yes you have lost it Embarassed

Ah thanks, not having a Garmin to hand I wasn't sure if the original was actually an image that could be backed up.

In the unlikely event that someone does want to revert to it and hasn't backed up I'm sure we can locate one amongst us here Thumbs Up

Can you still use the Garmin X Image with these newer Garmin's. I only have a couple of i3's which it works fine with.

What device do you have? Did you put both splash screens in there?

Are you sure there isn't a second page of pictures? Check the bottom right of the screen for an up and down arrow to scroll pages.

Ah this may be my fault! I re-packaged the images as .bmp files (which TomTom prefers) but Garmin may only accept .jpg's.

I've added the images in .jpg format to the .zip package now. Re-download the file and try again and the .jpg versions should display on your Garmin.

Let me know if it now works?

That was entirely my fault. They were in .jpg then I realised they were best in .jpg for TomTom and forgot that Garmin would still need .jpg! Apologies!
