I see on Garmin's website that you can download custom vehicle icons for some of their GPS units...
Can anyone shed some light on how to load these onto the DNX6140? Or does anyone even know if that is possible?
A friend of a friend installed my DNX6140 today in my '07 Ford Escape. It took about 2.5 hours, we ran into a few snags, but those were problems with the the car, not the DNX6140. Afterward, I spent an hour changing a bunch of settings, programming radio stations, and playing with the unit. I tested out a bunch of the features, and I'm extremely happy with it!
For those who are curious, the bluetooth paired seamlessly with my iPhone 3G, address book and all - no problems whatsoever. I made some test calls, they came in clear for me, and the people on the other end said they heard me just fine, but I sounded "a little funny" - like normal speakerphones. I have the mic placed right on my steering wheel column. I had no problems with dropping the signal or anything like that.
Still not sure how to load the custom vehicle choices onto the GPS... And does anyone know how to change the startup screen to a custom image? There are instructions in the manual for a custom background, but nothing as far as I can tell for a custom startup screen... I have heard that it can be done, though.
