    I had a heck of time trying to get this to work on my '17 Taco. What is important from what I can tell are the folder names (StartupImage and DisplayOffImage), the file names are alphanumeric and less than 32 characters, the file type is .jpg or .jpeg and I reformatted my thumb drive to FAT32. What finally did get Entune to recognize my images on the drive was opening the images in Microsoft Paint (running XP still) and saving the images. When I would save the images as jpg in Photoshop CS the images were not recognized by Entune on the thumb drive. PS gives a number of options when saving .jpg type images and I must have had an option selected that Entune doesn't like. It seems MS Paint has the correct option (though none are given) by default.

    Drop it into reverse as soon as you start it.

    I know this won't apply to most people, but if you upload the images onto your USB at work you may have to decrypt the images. Some networks have symantic endpoint protection and this will encrypt the files making them unrecognizeable when you try to upload them.

    Hi all,

    I have a few questions. I successfully resized images, got them on a flash drive formatted properly, and the truck recognized them. In my settings, I have the two custom images selected for startup and shutdown. They show up as selected in the menu.

    For startup, the custom image only flashes 1/2 of a second. Is there any way to make it stay on a little longer and also any way to remove the warning screens?

    For shutdown, the custom image isn't displayed at all. It just goes black when I turn the truck off. Any way to make that work as well?

    Thanks!

    You cannot disable the warning or make the startup go longer.

    The other isn't a shutdown image, its screen off image. Go to setup and hit the screen off button, the image will display

    For the startup image, no, it's only going to display for a second and then fade away.

    For the screen off image, go into setting and press Screen Off. The image will be permanently displayed on your screen until you turn it back on. You can still use steering wheel controls to change the audio, volume, etc.

    Also, there is no way to make an image display on the screen when the truck is off. You turn the screen off to see that image (not the truck).

    No problem! Your truck looks awesome by the way. You've got great taste. I have the same wheels and tires on my blue 2015 Taco.

    Changed the start up and screen off images again! :goingcrazy:

    Start up:


    Screen off:


    You can follow this guide to change the images which is super easy. Other tips: resize the photos to a 1.669:1 aspect ratio (1803x1080, 4032x3024, 2722x1631, 885x530, etc), ensure the photos are under 5mb in size, save the photos as .jpeg file type, and format the USB drive to MS-DOS (FAT) for Mac users. Here's a link to some minimalistic HUD/GUI-type images that I compiled that can be used.

    This just gave me some awesome Star Wars inspiration for a new Screen Off image...

    Found out the hard way Entune likes certain image sizes. Finally got this working.

    Full resolution image 1280x720. You will need to resize it in order for Entune to recognize it. 800 x 460 worked for me
