Hi

I wonder if anybody can suggest a solution. I can't seem to change my startup and closedown screens (TomTom XL IQ Routes).

I overwrote the splash.bmp and antitheft.bmp files.....



.....and in TomTom Home (Manage your navigation device) they show up as.....

Image link deleted as showing as malware. GerryC.

.....as they should. The images are 480pxl x 272pxl.

but when I start the TomTom, I still get.....



That image should not exist on the TomTom as it was overwritten - as confirmed in TomTom Home (Manage your navigation device).

Is there another TomTom startup image file lurking somewhere?

The shutdown screen is blank.

Does the TomTom have a cache that might need cleaning?

Just doesn't make any sense to me

so I'd be very grateful for any insight

Hi puntey, welcome to PGPSW.

Firstly, I have removed a couple of your image links as they were showing as malware from your image server.

The image that's left shows the standard screen when no image files are found. It also shows this if cold booting - does it drum roll?

I believe the XL devices are widescreen so would need "splashw.bmp" and "suspendw.bmp" files which are 480x272px. It could just be that they need to be named correctly.
