Personalize your Garmin startup screen...

Recommended Posts

Hey check this out...

 

I tried it and it works great...

 

Simply follow the instructions for a personalized startup message for select Garmin units...

 

a great way to put a "REWARD if found" message at the startup screens...

Wow!

 

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. What a great way to personalize one's GPS.

Ye the personalization is really nice, but too bad it is not password protected, but then again some might not care. Altering firmware is still a little more permanent.

 

I have always wished users had an option to password protect the entire unit. That would certainly thwart many who did not know much about GPSr's. Or just not allow others access to any sensitive info saved on the unit...

 

...this way your wife can't find out your tracks you saved on the golfing green, when you originally told her you were volunteering at the orphanage all weekend long....

 

hhaahahahahhaaaaaaaaa....

 

I dunno...

 

perhaps this may be useful...

Has anyone tried it with an eMap?

 

Nevermind, I just read the FAQ. It will not work on the eMap. icon_frown.gif

Sigh, it does work on a Legend, ver 2.41, but NOT my Legend with ver 2.50. I guess I should have done the startup screen, then updated the software. It does state, however, to do the upgrade first. Any Legend owners, go with 2.41, do the screen , then upgrade, and hope that doesn't wipe out your new startup.

 

If I ain't sweatin', I ain't cachin. Are we there yet?

MarinerBC,

 

The Legend 2.50 version includes the following upgrade:

 

Added ownership page to be shown at startup. To enter owner data, select “Owner Information” option from the main menu page’s option menu.

 

This would seem to supercede the need for the GpsWarn program.

only diff is that these type of programs cannot be easily altered by casual obseervers, as these programs alter the firmware, and are not just "settings"...

 

thus providing a method of personalization that is somewhat more permanent....

 

aside from that they are the same...
