    Bored of that plain looking GARMIN start up icon well do this. It doesnt have to be just this you can use any image. I chose this for the how to.
    Supplies
    Any Garmin GPS
    Garmin GPS cord
    Google.

    Step 1: Google images (Garmin Toyota Icon)
    [​IMG]
    Step 2: Save the image to your desktop
    Step 3: Plug in your Garmin into the computer USB port and into the Garmin (you'll see a little Icon on your Garmin and a new device on computer)
    Step 4: Click Open folder to view folders in Garmin autoplay
    [​IMG]
    Step 5: Select Garmin folder
    [​IMG]
    Step 6: Select JPEG folder
    [​IMG]
    Step 7: Click you image file on your desktop and drag it into the JPEG file
    [​IMG]
    Step 8: Unplug Garmin and let it boot up
    Step 9: Select Tools
    Step 10: Picture Viewer
    Step 11: Select your image
    Step 12: Select Info
    Step 13: Check Display at power on?
    You have successfully completed this Mod

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Nice. I understand you can change the voice, too. I'm gonna try and see if I can download Daffy Ducks voice.

    One of my friends had a pornstar voice, it wasn't a Garmin though. I didn't know you could change the voice on the Garmin.
